Gears in Motion Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Dangling drops make this simple necklace stand out. Cynthia added Swarovski Briolette pendants to the center of some fun cog chain for a look full of character and movement. She made a messy wrap at the top of each drop to complement the textured look of the chain. You can see more inspiration for using drops in your jewelry designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.

Step one:
Cut a 24-inch piece of 24 gauge Vintage Bronze Artbeads Designer Wire. Slide a Swarovski 11x5.5mm Briolette pendant in Chrysolite opal onto the center of the wire. Make a messy wrapped loop at the top of the bead. For help with this technique, please see this video.

Step two:
Repeat step one for another 11x5.5mm Briolette pendant. Repeat the step again for the Swarovski 13x6.5mm Briolette pendant in Chrysolite Opal.

Step three:
Cut a length of antique copper-plated brass cog chain approximately 16 inches long. Attach the 13x6.5mm Briolette to the center of the chain using a TierraCast copper-plated brass small oval open jump ring. For help opening and closing jump rings, please see this video tutorial. Attach an 11.5.5mm Briolette to either side of this center pendant using a jump ring for each.

Step four:
Attach half of the TierraCast antique copper-plated spiral toggle clasp to one end of the necklace using a jump ring. Do the same on the other end of the necklace.
