Two Can Love Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This necklace's warm pink and cocoa palette is a new approach to romantic fashion and offers a nostalgic feel for any feminine wardrobe. Even you can love a toucan when it's on a bead!

Step one:
Cut the antique brass-plated big, medium and small oval link chain into one 7-inch piece and one 3 1/2-inch piece. Attach the loop portion of the antique brass-plated pewter scrolled design circle toggle to one end of the 3 1/2-inch piece using a 5.5mm antique brass-plated 21 gauge open jump ring and the bar portion of the clasp to one end of the 7-inch piece using a second jump ring. For help working with jump rings, watch our Handy Tip video in the Learning Center. Set both chains aside.

Step two:
Thread one 2-inch antique brass-plated 20 gauge eye pin with one TierraCast copper antique small turkish heishi spacer, three 6x9mm opaque pink and fuchsia swirl with picasso roundel beads and another spacer. Finish the eye pin with a simple loop technique. Repeat this step seven more times.

Step three:
Thread one eye pin with a JBB antique brass-plated brass flower bush hollow round bead and finish with a simple loop. Thread another eye pin with one 3mm olivine fire-polished bead, the 30x40mm brown toucan with flowers on carnelian rectangle bead, and another 3mm bead. Finish with a simple loop. You should now have ten simple loop links (eight pink and fuchsia swirl links, one hollow round bead link and one toucan bead link).

Step four: Connect the following components in this order:
  • five pink and fuchsia swirl links
  • one JBB antique brass-plated brass flowers and leaves curved right link
  • two pink and fuchsia swirl links
  • the hollow round bead link
  • the JBB antique brass-plated brass flowers with leaves curved link
  • the toucan bead link
  • one curved right link
  • one pink and fuchsia swirl link
Attach one jump ring to each end of this pattern.

Step five:
Connect the first end of the pattern (the one with five pink loop links) to the open end of the 3 1/2-inch chain. Connect the other end of the pattern to the open end of the 7-inch chain.
Approximate size: 26 ¾ inches
