Necklace

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters, cut the following lengths of gold-filled twisted link chain:
  • One 25-inch length (starting with two single round links and ending with one twisted bar link)
  • One 3-inch length (starting and ending with two single round links)
  • One 2-inch length (starting and ending with two single round links)
  • One 4-1/2 inch length (starting and ending with two single round links)
STEP 2
String one Swarovski jet AB 10mm round bead on to one gold-plated 2-inch headpin. Using round-nose pliers and chain-nose pliers, begin a wrapped loop on the straight end of the wire. Before completing the wrapped loop, pass the wire through the last loop on the twisted bar link on the end of the 25-inch length of chain. Complete the wrapped loop.
STEP 3
Using chain-nose pliers and bent-nose pliers, open two 14Kt gold-filled jumprings. Pass one jumpring through the first single round link on the opposite end of the 25-inch length of chain and the loop on one gold-plated 12x7mm swivel lobster claw clasp. Close the jumpring.

Repeat to attach the second jumpring to the 25-inch length of chain and the gold-plated 12x7mm swivel lobster clasp to create a double jumpring.
STEP 4
String the following beads and components onto one gold-plated 2-inch eyepin:
  • One gold-plated and Swarovski crystal AB 10mm rondelle bead
  • One Swarovski white 14mm crystal pearl
  • One gold-plated and Swarovski crystal AB 10mm rondelle bead
  • One Swarovski jet AB 10mm round bead
STEP 5
Using round-nose pliers and chain-nose pliers, form a wrapped loop on the straight end of the wire creating a Swarovski crystal pearl beading link.

Repeat to create three Swarovski crystal pearl beading drops using the following components on gold-plated 2-inch headpins:
  • One Swarovski white 14mm crystal pearl
  • One gold-plated and Swarovski crystal AB 10mm rondelle bead
  • One Swarovski jet AB 10mm round bead
STEP 6
Counting from the lobster claw clasp, open the center round link on the ninth set of triple round links and pass it through the top loop on the Swarovski crystal pearl beading link. Close the link.
STEP 7
Using round-nose pliers and chain-nose pliers, open the simple loop on the bottom of the Swarovski crystal pearl beading link and pass it through the first link on the remaining three lengths of chain. Close the loop.
STEP 8
Using round-nose pliers and chain-nose pliers, open the last link on one of the three lengths of chain and pass it through the loop on one Swarovski crystal pearl beading drop. Close the loop.

Repeat to add one Swarovski crystal pearl beading drop to each of the remaining two lengths of chain.
