Canary Flight Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Canaries are bright yellow birds full of cheerful beauty, just like this necklace. Bird and wing pendants from Gardanne Beads create perfect canary style, while Swarovski crystal beads from an Artbeads Designer Blend provide a sparkling backdrop. You can find more inspiration for using Gardanne Beads components in your designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.

Step one:
Attach two 2 1/4-inch lengths of satin Hamilton gold-plated leaf chain to the Gardanne Beads lime enameled brass wing pendant using a 14K/20 gold-filled 6mm 20.5 gauge open round jump ring. For help opening and closing jump rings, please see our video tutorial. Attach the other ends of the chain to the eye of a 2-inch satin Hamilton gold-plated 20 gauge eye pin.

Step two:
Add a Gardanne Beads willow green enameled brass small tulip bead cap to the eye pin, over the two leaf chains. Then, add a bead from the Swarovski 4mm Round Verdant Sunshine Designer Blend. Make a wrapped loop at the top of the bead.

Step three:
Use a 6mm jump ring to attach the Gardanne Beads yellow enameled brass swallow pendant at the center of one the two lengths of leaf chain. The bird should peek out of the leafy layers, just above the wing.

Step four:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 20 inches long. Slide a 14K/20 gold-filled 2x2mm crimp tube onto the end followed by a 6mm jump ring attached to half of the JBB gold-plated pewter spiral toggle clasp. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.

Step five:
Add the following bead pattern to the strand:
  • Three Miyuki 8/0 round seed beads in galvanized gold
  • Five Verdant Sunshine beads
  • Three seed beads
  • Three Verdant Sunshine beads
  • Three seed beads
  • Three Verdant Sunshine beads
Repeat this pattern two times, then add three seed beads and five Verdant Sunshine beads to the strand. Slide on your bird focal and make a mirror image of the bead pattern on the other side of the focal.

Step six:
Add a crimp tube to the strand followed by a 6mm jump ring attached to the other half of the clasp. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.
