Nightfall Necklace Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
Multi-stranded designs are all the rage, and this necklace design offers an edgy twist on this popular trend. The combination of dark gunmetal and antique brass gives this necklace a unique look, influenced by both Victorian and gothic fashion. This necklace is perfect for a special night out; make it to wear this New Years Eve!
Step one: Attach an antique brass four petal flower pinch bail to a 25mm Swarovski zinnia pendant in Jet. String this pendant onto a 20-inch piece of gunmetal-plated curb chain and set aside.
Step two: Cut a 25-inch piece of gunmetal-plated medium rolo chain. Thread a 9mm Swarovski asymmetrical pearl in antique brass onto a 2-inch gunmetal-plated 20 gauge head pin. Repeat twice. Attach one of these dangles to the rolo chain about 9-inches from the end using a wrapped loop. Skip three links and attach the second dangle. Skip three more links and attach the third dangle. Move about 3.5-inches further along the chain and attach an 8mm Swarovski XILION pendant in crystal metallic light gold to the chain using a 5.5mm gunmetal-plated 21 gauge open jump ring. Skip three links and attach an 8mm Swarovski XILION pendant in Jet. Skip three more links and attach an 8mm Swarovski XILION pendant in Crystal Metallic Light Gold. Set this chain aside.
Step three: Cut a 25-inch piece of gunmetal-plated big, medium and small oval link chain. Thread an antique vintage brass-plated pewter three leaf pinch bail through a large link on the chain about 1-inch from the center point and attach it to a 17mm Swarovski pendular lochrose sew-on in Jet Hematite.
Step four: Making sure that both of the pendants are facing the same direction, connect the three chains together at each end of the necklace using a 5.5mm gunmetal-plated 21 gauge open jump ring. Attach a sterling crinkled and bent toggle clasp to the necklace using these same jump rings.
