Carrie's Bridal Necklace Instructions Designed by Artbeads
We made this necklace for a stunning bride with a plunging V-neck gown that had beaded accents. We decided to keep the design fairly simple, so as not to detract from the dress.
We shortened our necklace to 22-inches, you may choose to use the full amount of chain.
Step one: On a 1 1/2-inch ball head pin string a Swarovski 6mm mocca faceted roundelle, a sterling silver 8mm royal beadcap upside down so that it will cup the following Swarovski 8mm sapphire AB 2x faceted round. Finish with a simple loop. For help making a simple loop please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. Set aside.
Step two: Attach the 6.85mm sterling silver jump ring to the mother of pearl shell pendant and the dangle from step one. Slide the pendant onto the sterling silver love heart chain. For help with jump rings click here.
Step three: Attach a 4.60mm sterling silver jump ring to one end of the chain and connect it to one side of the 14x8mm sterling silver filigree clasp. Repeat to finish the other side of the necklace.
