Marseille Necklace Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
Filigree components are a fun way to create your own focal points in designs. Cynthia layered filigree embellishments and topped them off with a Swarovski crystal rhinestone for the ultimate style statement. You can find more ideas for using filigree in your designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Step one: Use Swarovski Ceralun walnut epoxy clay to attach the Swarovski 12mm cushion fancy stone in Crystal Dark Red Shiny to the center of the Kabela Design antique brass small beautiful pendant. Attach this embellishment to the brass round filigree wreath with patina embellishment using more epoxy clay. For help using epoxy clay, see this tutorial. Allow to dry.
Step two: Cut six lengths of antique brass-plated 1+1 infinity link chain approximately 1 1/2 inches long each. Cut four lengths of 3mm antique brass double link curb chain to the same length.
Step three: Attach a length of the infinity chain to the bottom of the patina embellishment using a 4.5mm antique brass-plated 21 gauge open jump ring. For help opening and closing jump rings, see this video tutorial. Attach a length of double link curb chain right next to this chain using another jump ring.
Step four: On the next opening over on the patina embellishment, add a length of infinity chain using a jump ring. Add a double link curb chain and another infinity chain right next to it using one jump ring for both chains. Repeat this step and then step three for the next openings on the embellishment to complete the chain dangles.
Step five: Cut a length of brass oxide brass curb chain approximately 9 inches long. Attach one end to the top side of your embellishment using a TierraCast medium oval brass oxide pewter open jump ring. Attach half of the TierraCast brass oxide pewter craftsman toggle clasp set to the other end of the chain using another oval jump ring. Repeat this step for the other side of the necklace.
