Elegant Talon Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This lovely last-minute gift idea has just the right amount of sharp sophistication to wear with any outfit. Make this Elegant Talon necklace to give to someone special this season.

Step one:
Attach the Swarovski 50mm Pegasus pendant in Jet to the sterling silver flower petals pinch bail by opening up the bail with chain nose pliers, inserting the pendant and closing the bail. Use the nylon jaw pliers to close the pinch bail if needed. Attach the 1.27x9.0mm sterling silver open jump ring to the top of the bail.

Step two:
Cut approximately 20 inches of silver-plated round links on round cable chain and attach the jump ring from step one to the center of the chain. Attach one .90x5.95mm sterling silver open jump ring to each end of the chain. Connect one jump ring to the "hook" portion of the antique silver-plated pewter simple hammered hook & eye clasp and the other jump ring to the "eye" portion of the clasp. Watch our Handy Tip video is you need help working with jump rings.
