Lace is a key material in fashion this season and we often get asked the question--what type of jewelry goes well with lace clothing? Well, here it is ...

Necklace

Step 1
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and bent-nose pliers separate the following lengths of 13x9mm twisted cable chain:
  • Ten 5-inch lengths
  • Two 2-1/2 inch lengths
Step 2
String the following onto one gold-plated 2-inch eyepin:
  • One 6x3.5mm Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB rondelle
  • One rubberized acrylic 32x12mm oval
  • One 6x3.5mm Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB rondelle
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire creating a rubberized oval link.

Repeat to create a total of eleven rubberized oval links.
Step 3
String the following onto one gold-plated 2-inch eyepin:
  • One 4x2mm Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB rondelle
  • One rubberized acrylic 10mm round
  • One 4x2mm Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB rondelle
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire creating a rubberized round link.

Repeat to create a total of twenty-two rubberized round links.
Step 4
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and bent-nose pliers open two gold-plated 7x5mm oval jumprings and forty-four gold-plated 5mm round jumprings.
Step 5
Pass one 7x5mm oval jumpring through the last link on one end of one 2-1/2 inch length of twisted cable chain and the loop on one 18x12mm lobster clasp. Close the jumpring. Repeat to attach a second jumpring creating double jumprings.
Step 6
Pass one gold-plated 5mm round jumprings through the last link on the opposite end of the 2-1/2 inch length of twisted cable chain and the loop on one end of one rubberized round link. Close the jumpring.
Step 7
Continue to connect the following components using 5mm jumprings:
  • The loop on the opposite end of the rubberized round link from Step 6
  • One rubberized oval link
  • One rubberized round link
  • The last link on one 5-inch length of twisted cable chain
Step 8
Repeat Steps 6 and 7 using the previous 5-inch length of twisted cable chain.

Continue to repeat Steps 6 and 7 using 5-inch lengths of gold-finished 13x9mm twisted cable chain a total of ten times.
