: : : Materials : : :

  • Drop, Swarovski crystal, jet, 13x6.5mm briolette pendant (20 drops)
  • Sew-on component, Swarovski crystal, crystal silver shade, foil back, 10mm chessboard (20 components)
  • Sew-on component, Swarovski crystal, crystal silver shade, foil back, 20mm chessboard (6 components)
  • Link, hammertone, drilled rectangle (5 links)
  • Clasp, hammertone, square (1 clasp)
  • Clasp, hammertone, ellipse (1 clasp)
  • Jumpring, 6mm round (20 jumprings)
  • Cord, Beadalon, black leather, 1mm
STEP 1
Using the 1mm leather, cut 2 pieces 12" long and 10 pieces 6" long. Set aside.
STEP 2
Beginning with Swarovski sew-on stone art. 3220 20mm crystal silver shade, lay out on your bead board the sew-on stone art. 3220 20mm crystal silver shade and then the hammertone rectangle links, alternating them until you have 11 pieces laid out.
STEP 3
Using one piece of 6" leather, slip one end of the leather through one hole of sew-on stone art. 3220 20mm crystal silver shade and the other end of the leather through the hole of the hammertone rectangle link. Leaving about a 10mm space between the components and keeping the leather tails together, tie an overhand knot.

Note: Keep the knot tight against the hammertone link hole. The leather loop connecting the two components should be about 10mm on both sides of the piece for a total loop size of 20mm. DO NOT TRIM THE LEATHER TAILS AT THIS TIME.
STEP 4
Using another piece of 6" leather, slip one end of the leather through the opposite hole of the hammertone link used in Step 3. Picking up a second sew-on stone art. 3220 20mm crystal silver shade, slip the other end of the leather through one hole of this sew on stone. Leaving about a 10mm space between the components and keeping the leather tails together, tie an overhand knot.

Note: Keep the knot tight against the sew-on stone hole. The leather loop connecting the two components should be about 10mm on both sides of the piece for a total loop size of 20mm. DO NOT TRIM THE LEATHER TAILS AT THIS TIME.
STEP 5
Continue in this manner until all sew-on stones art. 3223 20mm crystal silver shade and all hammertone links are connected ending with the sew-on stones art. 3223 20mm.
STEP 6
Using (1) Swarovski sew-on stone art. 3223 10mm crystal silver shade, slip one leather tail (hanging from the connection between the sew-on stone and the hammertone rectangle) through one hole on the sew-on stone. Slide the sew-on stone away from the end of the leather and tie an overhand knot.

Note: Tie the knot in the position along the leather where you would like the sew-on stone to sit. Continue adding (1) Swarovski sew-on stone art. 3223 10mm crystal silver shade to each leather tail in the same manner. You should now have attached all 20 sew-on dangles.
STEP 7
Open (1) 6mm jumpring and attach to (1) Swarovski pendant art. 6110 13.5 x 6.5mm jet. While the jumpring is still open, attach to the second hole on the first Swarovski sew-on stone art. 3223 10mm crystal silver shade added in Step 6. Close the jumpring. Continue in this manner and attach the remaining 19 pendants art. 6110 13.5 x 6.5mm jet.

Note: The dangles may hang slightly stiff, but the leather will soften up with wear.
STEP 8
Using one piece of 12" leather, fold in half and attach to the remaining hole on sew-on stone art. 3223 20mm crystal silver shade on one side of the necklace. Keeping the tails together, tie an overhand knot right up against the hole. Keeping both ends of the leather together, slip the leather through the hole of the hammered toggle piece. Line up the toggle on the leather to the desired length and tie an overhand knot which keeps the toggle piece in place.
STEP 9
Repeat Step 8 for the opposite side using the bar closure of the toggle set.
STEP 10
After making sure all of the overhand knots are securely tightened, nip the leather tails that extend beyond the overhand knots to the desired length. Repeat for each tail.
