Pont Neuf Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Add sparkling layers to your style with this sleek and sophisticated necklace. This necklace uses multi-strand connectors to create a layered look. The connectors allow you to add or remove layers, so you can wear all three strands together, two strands or just one. It's a new necklace every time you wear it! You'll love sporting these layers at formal affairs, at work or anywhere!

Making the links:

Step one:
Creating the first link: Add a Swarovski 4mm faceted round in Crystal Vitrail Medium to a 2-inch 22 gauge sterling silver eye pin. Add a Swarovski 10mm round pearl in Light Grey, followed by another Crystal Vitrail Medium faceted round. Finish the eye pin with a simple loop. See our Handy Tip for more information on how to make a simple loop. Repeat this step 11 times for a total of 12 links. Label these the Light Grey pearl links. Set aside for now.

Step two:
Creating the second link: Thread a Crystal Vitrail Medium faceted round onto an eye pin, followed by a Swarovski 6mm faceted round in Crystal AB, a Dakota Stones cat's eye 10x14mm oval bead, another Crystal AB faceted round and another Crystal Vitrail Medium faceted round. Finish the eye pin with a simple loop. Repeat this step five times for a total of six links. Label these the oval bead links. Set aside for now.

Step three:
Creating the third link: Thread a Swarovski 6mm Tahitian-Look round pearl onto an eye pin, followed by a Dakota Stones cat's eye 8mm faceted roundel bead, a Nunn Design antique silver-plated pewter faceted roundel bead, another cat's eye faceted roundel and a Tahitian-Look pearl. Finish the eye pin with a simple loop. Repeat this step five times for a total of six links. Label these the faceted roundel links. Set aside for now.

Step four:
Connecting the links: Attach a Light Grey pearl link (first link from step one) to the end of one of the oval bead links (second link from step two) using a sterling silver 4.6mm open jump ring. If you need more instruction on how to open and close jump rings, please see our Handy Tip Video. Attach the other end of the oval bead link to another Light Grey pearl link (first link) using another 4.6mm jump ring. Repeat this step five times so that you have six long links.

Assembling the Necklace:

Step five:
Creating the long strand: You are going to attach your links and varying lengths of the antique silver-plated brass alternating tiny and small disc chain together to create the strands of your necklace. You will use 4.6mm jump rings to connect each part. Follow this pattern for the longest strand:
  • One long link
  • A length of chain that is one inch long or three discs long
  • A faceted roundel link (third link from step three)
  • A length of chain that is 1 1/2 inches long or five discs long
  • Another long link
  • A six disc length of chain
  • A faceted roundel link (third link)
  • A three disc length of chain
  • A long link
  • A five disc length of chain
  • A faceted roundel link (third link)
  • A three disc length of chain
  • A long link


Step six:
Follow this pattern for the medium strand of your necklace:
  • One three disc length of chain
  • A faceted roundel link (third link)
  • A length of chain approximately 1 1/4 inches long or four discs long
  • A long link
  • A five disc length of chain
  • A faceted roundel link (third link)
  • A five disc length of chain
  • A long link
  • A length of chain approximately 2 1/2 inches long or seven discs long
  • A faceted roundel link (third link)
  • A three disc length of chain


Step seven:
For your shortest strand, cut a length of chain approximately 16 inches long. Attach the Nunn Design sterling silver-plated pewter medallion charm with crystal to the center of the chain using a 4.6mm jump ring. Add a Lassero sterling silver large circle charm with cut-out center and Swarovski crystals to a 4.6mm jump ring, followed by a Lassero sterling silver tiny round charm with Swarovski crystals. Add two more jump rings and attach the Lassero dangle to one side of the Nunn Design medallion charm. Create another Lassero dangle to go on the other side of the Nunn Design medallion charm.

Step eight:
Add a sterling silver 6.10mm open jump ring to the end of your long strand and slide it over one of the hooks on a sterling silver multi-strand connector. Add a 6.10mm jump ring to the end of your medium strand and slide it onto the hook of the connector. Add a 6.10mm jump ring to the end of your short strand and slide it onto the hook of the connector. Slide the jump rings over the other hook of the connector so that the connector is closed. Attach one half of the antique silver-plated pewter square swirl design toggle clasp to the open loop on the connector using a 6.10mm jump ring. Repeat this step for the other end of the necklace.
