Patriotic Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Show your love for America with this patriotic necklace!

Step one: Begin by making the dangles for the necklace. All links will be made using simple loops. For detailed instructions on how to make a simple loop, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. For the center link string a 6mm Capri blue bicone onto a head pin and make a simple loop. Attach an eye pin to the loop and string a 4mm sterling silver stardust twist bead on the eye pin, finish with another loop. Attach an eye pin with a 6mm light Siam Swarovski bicone to that and finish with a loop. Attach another eye pin with a twist bead followed by an eye pin with another Capri blue bicone. This is the center dangle, make a simple loop in it and attach it to a sterling silver lariat loop. The other two dangles that will attach on either side of that one are comprised of an 8mm Capri blue Swarovski bicone on a head pin, followed by a 6mm silver stardust twist bead and an 8mm light Siam bicone.

Step two: You will also need two dangles each with a Capri blue or light Siam 6mm bicone on an eye pin with a sterling silver star charm hanging from the bottom, for a total of four.

Step three: To assemble the necklace, simply slide two sterling silver rounded barrel beads followed by a light Siam star dangle, two more silver beads, a Capri blue star dangle, two silver beads, and then the lariat loop. You will need to attach an open jump ring to the lariat for it to hang correctly. Follow that with two silver beads, a light Siam star dangle, two more silver beads, a Capri blue star dangle and two more silver beads. Three easy steps to a necklace that will surely be the hit of your holiday parties! Length: 18 inches
