Simple and bold, this versatile necklace is an excellent gift option for Father's Day or a birthday. It features a round, jet black crystal that resembles a wheel. The crystal and gunmetal chain are formal enough to allow this necklace to be worn to work, but it can also be paired with casual attire.
Step one: Thread a TierraCast® silver 4mm hex heishi spacer, a Swarovski 12.5mm ring bead in Jet with a 4mm seamless sterling silver round bead in its center hole and a heishi spacer onto a 2-inch gunmetal-plated 20 gauge eye pin. Finish the eye pin with a simple loop.
Step two: Cut two pieces of gunmetal-plated split ring cable chain 8 1/2-inches long. Link the following components to each other in the order listed: a gunmetal-plated 12x6.5mm trigger clasp, a 4.5mm gunmetal-plated 21 gauge open jump ring, a 8 1/2-inch chain, the beaded eye pin, a 8 1/2-inch chain and a 6mm gunmetal-plated 18 gauge open jump ring.
