Paris Je T'aime Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This steampunk-inspired necklace incorporates many vintage pieces but manages to maintain a very modern feel. Bold dangles, unique patterns and plenty of texture make this piece perfect for anyone wishing to make an impact with their designs. For a different color palette, feel free to use the alternative components listed below.

Step One:
Cut out the background paper you will use for the antique silver-plated pewter small framed circle pendant and the antique silver-plated pewter designer picture frame. We used our vintage Paris-themed collage paper, but you could use any theme you choose. Coat the pieces in Mod Podge. Let dry. Glue the paper into the bottom of the designer frame using Mod Podge. Let dry. Pour in your ICE Resin® following the instructions on the package. Glue the paper into the bottom of the circle pendant and let dry. Place the antique silver small beaded heart link onto the paper toward the bottom of the frame. Pour in the ICE Resin®. For help with ICE Resin®, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Let dry overnight.

Step Two:
Follow the instructions on the 5-minute two-part epoxy to mix it together. We recommend squeezing the pump until you get an even flow from both tubes and then squeezing the amount you need onto a clean disposable surface and mixing with a toothpick to make sure that both parts are mixed evenly. Use the epoxy to glue the circle frame inside of the antique brass-plated pewter s-cut silver ring. Let dry. Set aside. Glue the antique silver large beaded circle link inside the antique vintage brass-plated pewter beaded round picture frame using the epoxy. Let dry. Set aside. Using the epoxy, glue the antique brass hammered circle into the antique brass open circle. Then glue the antique vintage brass-plated pewter abstract framed round link to the top of the circles. Be careful as it will be slightly slippery. Carefully place the pendant upside down and place the antique vintage brass-plated pewter fancy link where you want it. With a tooth pick, place a lot of epoxy on the link. The epoxy will go into the holes and glue everything together. Let dry. Set aside. This epoxy should dry in five minutes, but you may need to wait a full hour before it is fully cured.

Step Three:
On a 2-inch antique brass-plated eye pin string a 4mm Swarovski XILION bicone in tanzanite ab, an 8mm Swarovski faceted round in lime and a tanzanite bicone. Finish with a simple loop. For help with simple loops, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Attach the antique brass frame from step two to one end of the eye pin using a 4mm antique brass-plated open jump ring. For help with jump rings, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Set aside.

Step Four:
On an eye pin, string a Czech glass opalite and alexandrite Picasso roundel, a 6mm Swarovski XILION bicone in lime and another roundel. Finish with a simple loop. Set aside.

Step Five: Attach a 6mm antique brass-plated open jump ring to the bottom of the antique brass altar link. Attach the focal pendant from step one to that jump ring with a smaller 4mm jump ring. Set aside.

Step Six:
On an eye pin, string an alexandrite bicone, a 4mm Swarovski faceted cube in khaki and an alexandrite bicone. Finish with a simple loop. Attach the antique brass star outline charm to the eye pin using a 6mm jump ring. On an eye pin, string an 8mm Swarovski chessboard bead in tanzanite, an antique vintage brass-plated pewter bead cap and a khaki cube. Finish with a simple loop. Attach the antique brass star punch tab charm to the bottom of the eye pin, near the chessboard bead. Attach the two eye pins to one 6mm jump ring.

Step Seven:
String together in this order: antique vintage brass-plated pewter abstract oval link, 6mm jump ring, approximately 13 inches of antique brass-plated small oval link chain, 6mm jump ring, the brass link from step five, eye pin from step four, approximately 12 inches of chain, 6mm jump ring and the15mm antique brass wheel round button.

Step Eight:
Attach the dangles from step six to the chain, approximately five inches to the left of the center link. Attach the 22.5mm antique brass clock and gears round button to the chain approximately 2.5-inches to the left of the center link using a 6mm jump ring. Attach the designer frame to the chain approximately 1.5-inches to the left of the center link using a 6mm jump ring. Attach the fancy link pendant to the chain approximately 2.5-inches to the right of the center link using a 6mm jump ring. Attach the dangle from step three to the chain approximately five inches to the right of the center link using a 6mm jump ring.
