Retired - Zanzibar Necklace

PROJECT N835
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
Fun, playful, and exotic this necklace features a bold red tassel accented by pearl knotted howlite gemstone beads. Accenting the red of the tassel is a wonderfully full beaded Zola Elements chain and a shiny Moroccan chain.
Instructions
Note: this necklace measures approximately 35 inches long without the tassel. You can easily make it longer or shorter by adjusting the chain lengths.
  1. You will want to begin this project by pearl knotting and finishing your tassel. To do this, please watch the video: How to Finish Zola Elements Tassels for Jewelry.
  2. If you need further instructions on pearl knotting and adding the clamshell knot cover, please see the video: Pearl Knotting using Tweezers.
  3. Take your Zola Elements chain and cut your 1 foot in half so you have two equal lengths, 6 inches long each. Next expose an end chain link on either side of each cut length by removing one bar on each side. Here is a video to show the process if needed.
  4. Cut your Moroccan chain so it is 20 inches long.
  5. Time to assemble your necklace! Open a jump ring and link it to the loop on the end of the clamshell knot cover as well as a link on your Zola Elements chain. Close the jump ring. On the other side of the Zola Elements chain attach another jump ring and also link it to one end of your Moroccan chain. Close the jump ring. Repeat this process on the other side of your necklace.
  6. All done!
This necklace easily slips over the head so there is no need for a clasp.
