Camelot Chains Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
With bold, gunmetal chains and contrasting pearls, this multi-strand necklace is full of rich elements. The twisted effect brings a new dimension to style, making this the perfect cool weather accessory with jeans, tweeds and high heels or an elegant evening dress.
Step one: Attach the JBB silver-plated pewter two-leaf pinch bail to the Swarovski 40mm Navette pendant in Jet. Simply open the bail with flat nose pliers, insert the pendant and close. Slide the pendant onto the gunmetal-plated 5+1 round and twisted rectangle link chain. Set aside.
Step two: Cut a 24-inch long piece of jewelry wire and attach a 5.5mm gunmetal-plated 21 gauge open jump ring to one end using a sterling 2x2mm crimp tube. Get help with crimp tubes by reading our Handy Tip in the Learning Center.
Step three: String the following beads onto the wire in a random fashion: Swarovski 14mm round large hole pearls in Light Grey, Swarovski 6mm round pearls in Cream and Swarovski 7mm round pearls in Tahitian Look. Make sure to evenly space out the 14mm pearls along the strand. Attach a jump ring and crimp tube to the other end.
Step four: Attach a jump ring to each end of the 5+1 chain, the gunmetal-plated twisted double link chain and the gunmetal-plated textured oval link chain. For help attaching jump rings watch our Handy Tip video in the Learning Center.
Step five: Connect one jump ring from the end of each chain and the pearl strand to the bar portion of the TierraCast 3/4-inch black finish pewter Anna's toggle and clasp. Twist all of the strands together, and then connect the open ends to the loop portion of the toggle.
