Garden in Bloom Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Inspired by the floral prints that occur throughout the transfer sheets, this necklace has a distinctly elegant feel thanks to its bi-tonal color palette. This grownup design was created during a fun jewelry design day as part of our annual Mommy & Me series.

These transfer sheets were so much fun that we couldn't create just one design. Browse the other fun designs they inspired, including the Sugar and Spice bracelet, Sweet Popsicle necklace, Flower Child necklace, Urban Poppy bracelet,Anemone necklace, Iris necklace and Chintz and Chain bracelet.

Step One: Cut out the images and words from the graphic florals and decorative words transfer sheets that you want to use on the antique silver-plated pewter large circle tag link. Follow the instructions on the packaging to transfer them onto your tag. Lightly coat with a layer of sealant. Let dry. Repeat to place an image on the antique silver-plated pewter medium thin rectangle tag link. Set aside.

Step Two: Cut an image from the transfer sheet to fit the bottom of the silver-plated pewter small framed circle pendant. Transfer the image to the bottom of the pendant and cover with the Gel du Soleil following the instructions on the bottle. Set under a UV lamp to cure for at least 15 minutes.

Step Three: Construct the necklace by connecting in this order: 22-inch piece of antique-silver chain, sterling silver open jump ring, TierraCast antique silver paloma link, three jump rings, rectangle tag, jump ring, antique silver-plated right-facing leaf link, jump ring and a round tag. Add another jump ring and connect to the other end of the chain. Attach the circle pendant to the chain approximately 3 1/2 inches to the right of the round tag using a jump ring. For help with jump rings visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
