Single-Strand Necklace with Ceramic Beads, Antiqued Gold Pewter Charms and Gold-Plated Chain

STEP 1
String one 4mm round burgundy glass bead, one gold-plated leaf bead cap, one 33x23mm oval green and black ceramic bead, one gold leaf bead cap, and one 4mm round burgundy glass bead onto a 3-inch eyepin. Form the leaf bead caps around the ceramic bead. 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 green ceramic beading link.

Repeat to create two red and yellow ceramic beading links, using one 4mm round emerald glass bead, one gold-plated leaf bead cap, one 33x23mm oval red and yellow ceramic bead, one gold leaf bead cap, and one 4mm round emerald glass bead on a 3-inch eyepin.
STEP 2
Using flush-cutters, cut the following lengths chain:
  • One 8-link length of gold-plated 3x2.5mm cable chain
  • One 4-1/2 inch length of gold-plated 4x8x3.3mm cable chain
  • One 6-1/2 inch length of gold-plated 4x8x3.3mm cable chain
  • One 8-1/2 inch length of gold-plated 4x8x3.3mm cable chain
STEP 3
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open a 6mm fancy jumpring. Pass it through the loop on the toggle portion of the clasp and the first link of the 6-1/2 inch length of chain. Close the jumpring.
STEP 4
Continue connecting components in the following order:
  • One red and yellow ceramic beading link
  • 4-1/2 inch length of chain
  • One red and yellow ceramic beading link
  • 8-1/2 inch length of chain
STEP 5
Open a 6mm fancy jumpring. Pass it through the loop on the toggle ring portion of the clasp and the last link of the 8-1/2 inch length of chain. Close the jumpring.
STEP 6
Open an 8mm fancy jumpring. Pass it through the loop on a gold-plated pine cone charm. Close the jumpring.

Open a 4mm jumpring. Pass it through the first link on an 8-link length of gold-plated 3x2.5mm cable chain and the loop on a gold-plated snowflake charm. Close the jumpring. Open a 4mm jumpring. Pass it through the last link on an 8-link length of gold-plated 3x2.5mm cable chain. Close the jumpring.

Open an 8mm fancy jumpring. Pass it through the 8mm jumpring attached to the pine cone charm, the 4mm jumpring attached to the last link of the gold-plated 3x2.5mm cable chain, one of the simple loops on the green ceramic beading link, and over the 5-1/2 inch length of gold-plated 4x8x3.3mm cable chain in the center of the necklace from Step 4. Close the jumpring.
