Single-Strand Necklace and Earring Set with Antiqued Pewter Charms, Swarovski Crystal Beads, Black Pen Shell Focal and Black Aluminum Cable Chain

STEP 1
Using side-cutting pliers, cut an 18-inch length of black aluminum cable chain.

Using two pairs of chain-nose pliers, open a jumpring. Pass the open ring through a loop on one half of the clasp. Close the jumpring. Open another jumpring then pass it through the jumpring attached to the clasp and the last link on one end of the chain. Close the jumpring.

Repeat on the other half of the clasp.
STEP 2
Cut a 4-inch length of wire. Form the length of wire into a wrapped bail on the black pen shell focal to make a pendant.
STEP 3
Open a jumpring. Match up the ends of the chain and let it hang. Pass the open jumpring through the center link on the chain, the loop on the wrapped bail and one white epoxy drop. Close the jumpring.
STEP 4
Place one 3mm white opal Swarovski crystal bicone, one 4mm jet Swarovski crystal bicone, one 6mm fireopal Swarovski crystal bicone, one 4mm jet Swarovski crystal and one 3mm white opal Swarovski bicone onto a natural grey niobium headpin. Form a simple loop on the end to create a long beaded drop.

Repeat for a total of 22 drops.
STEP 5
Place one 3mm white opal Swarovski crystal bicone, one 6mm fireopal Swarovski crystal bicone and one 3mm white opal Swarovski crystal bicone onto a natural grey niobium headpin. Form a simple loop on the end to create a short beaded drop.

Repeat for a total of 11 drops.
STEP 6
Open a black jumpring, then add two of the long beaded drops and one of the short beaded drops. Then close the jumpring.

Open another black jumpring. Place the open jumpring through the third link up from the center link of the chain, the jumpring holding the three drops and one white epoxy drop. Close the jumpring.
STEP 7
Repeat Step 6 on each odd numbered chain link from #5 to #11.
STEP 8
Repeat Steps 6 and 7 on the opposite side of the chain.
STEP 9
Place one 4mm jet Swarovski crystal bicone, one 6mm fireopal Swarovski crystal bicone and one 4mm jet Swarovski crystal bicone onto a natural grey niobium headpin. Form a simple loop on the end.
STEP 10
Open a black jumpring and pass it through the loops on the remaining two long crystal drops, one short beaded drop, the short beaded drop made in Step 9 and the existing jumpring connecting the pendant to the center link of the chain. Close the jumpring.
STEP 11
Cut 12 three-link lengths of the black aluminum 8x5mm curb chain.
STEP 12
Open a jumpring, then pass it through the second link up from the center link of the necklace. Add the last link on one end of one length of black aluminum 8x5mm curb chain to the open jumpring. Close the jumpring. Open another jumpring then pass it through the last link on the other end of the length of black aluminum 8x5mm curb chain length and the loop on a cat face charm. Close the jumpring.

Repeat Step 12 on the even links, from #4 to #12, adding a different charm to each length of 8x5mm curb chain. The sequence used is as follows:
  • Cat face charm
  • Orange pumpkin charm
  • Flying bat charm
  • Skull and crossbones charm
