Dublin Dreams Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

We love the creative way the different elements come together in this piece. Accentuated with the Celtic pendant this necklace has an eclectic, one of a kind feel.

Step one: Use 1-hour two-part epoxy following manufacturers instructions to attach the Swarovski 25mm jet disk pendant to the inside of a 1.75 inch radiant ring. Allow it to dry. Cut a three-inch piece of rollo chain and wrap it around the jet disk and radiant ring donut twice and secure the ends of the chain with a 3.3mm jump ring. Repeat on the opposite side of the donut. Attach a 9.0mm jump ring to each of the chain sections. Set aside.

Step two: On a 2-inch sterling silver eye pin thread the Hill Tribe silver flower stamped round bead frame and the Swarovski 10mm maroon pearl. Finish with a simple loop. For help making simple loops please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. Attach two 9.0mm sterling silver jump rings to the 31mm planish patterned silver ring. Attach the loops on the flower frame to the 9.0mm jump rings inside the patterned silver ring. Set aside.

Step three: Attach two 7.35mm jump rings to the rhodium radiant round link. Set aside

Step four: Attach two 7.35mm jump rings to a rhodium 1.75 inch radiant ring. On a 2½-inch sterling silver head pin thread a Swarovski 12mm bordeaux pearl and the antique silver hummingbird bead. Finish with a wrapped loop. For help making wrapped loops please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. Connect the wrapped loop to one of the jump rings on the radiant ring. Set aside.

Step five: Cut two ten link, one eight link, one five link and one three link sections of gunmetal-plated oval link chain.

Step six: Link the following together in this order: the loop section of the hammered round donut toggle clasp, a 9.0mm jump ring, a ten link section of oval link chain, the jet disc and radiant ring donut, the three ring chain section, the bead frame with maroon pearl center, the eight link chain section, the radiant round link, the five link chain section, the radiant ring with hummingbird and pearl, the other ten link chain section, a 9.0mm jump ring and the bar end of the toggle clasp.

Step seven: Attach a 4.2mm jump ring to a Swarovski 8mm dark indigo rivoli pendant. Repeat twice. Attach a 4.2mm jump ring to a Swarovski 6mm Indian pink rivoli pendant. Repeat once. Use the attached jump rings to alternate these crystals from the five loops on the sterling silver Celtic serpent knot 5-ring chandelier. Attach the 7.35mm jump ring to the Celtic chandelier and attach it to the center link on the necklace.
