Iris Necklace Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
The easy-to-use transfer sheets were the inspiration for a Mommy & Me jewelry designing party. We loved the way the purple crystals and silk ribbon coincided beautifully with the purple floral design on the transfer sheet. If you're creating this design with your child, you may need to help them with the jump rings.
Step One: Cut out a section of the wheat and violet flowers transfer sheet to fit the antique silver-plated pewter medium thin rectangle tag. Per the instructions on the transfer sheet, soak it in water and then slide it onto the tag. Coat the tag in a thin layer of sealer. Let dry.
Step Two: Use a 6.85 sterling silver open jump ring to attach the tag to the center ring of the antique brass curly with small paisley 3-ring chandelier. Attach a 6mm Swarovski XILION pendant in cyclamen opal to the outer ring on the chandelier with a 6.85 jump ring. Repeat to attach a crystal to the other outside ring.
Step Three: Attach a 9.0mm sterling silver open jump ring to the top ring of the chandelier. String the hand-dyed silk mocha brown with purple edges through the jump ring. Tie at the length that is appropriate for you.
