Gothic Collar Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

Express your dark side with a touch of fierce fashion in our Gothic Collar idea. Complete with a winged skull and tiny blood red drop pendants, this modern reflection of an untamed spirit is perfect to wear on your next haunting adventure.

Step one:
Attach one Swarovski 8mm XILION mini pear pendant in Light Siam onto one 0.90x4.60mm sterling silver open jump ring. Connect this jump ring to a second jump ring. Connect the second jump ring to a third jump ring, creating a chain. Repeat this for the second mini pear pendant. Watch our Handy Tip video to learn how to open and close a jump ring if you need help. Set these aside.

Step two:
Attach one jump ring to each loop on the Green Girl Studios pewter winged skull pendant. Connect each jump ring to a second jump ring. Set aside.

Step three:
Cut approximately 15 ½ inches of Regaliz™ 10x6mm black oval leather and approximately 17 inches of 1.5mm black round natural leather. Adjust these measurements to fit your neck size if needed. Insert one end of each cord into one part of the Regaliz 10x31mm antique silver-plated magnetic clasp using E6000 glue. Simply add a dab of glue inside the clasp, rest the cord ends inside, and gently hold for a couple of minutes. Allow the glue to dry.

Step four:
Allow the 1.5mm leather cord to loosely hang in front of the thick leather. Slide three Regaliz 7x18mm antique silver-plated oval ring slider beads over both leather cords. Next, attach the skull pendant to the 1.5mm leather cord using its jump rings and center it. Move one more slider bead over both leather cords and then connect the mini pear pendant to the 1.5mm leather cord. Add two more slider beads.

Step five:
Glue the open ends of each leather cord into the other half of the magnetic clasp. Allow the glue to dry.
