Vintage Look Link Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This necklace is actually easier than it looks and will make a big impression! Perfect for brides, bridesmaids or even the mother of the bride, this necklace will be worn long after the big day is over.

Step one: You will create a 19 inch necklace by linking antique silver pewter large beaded circle links with antique silver pewter small beaded squares using sterling silver open jump rings. Begin with a circle, attach it to the loop end of a 12mm bowed toggle clasp. Alternate links until you have used all 37, finish by attaching the last link to the bar end of the toggle.

Step two: Make the dangles that will hang from the necklace. On each of the 1½ inch head pins, you will string one 6mm Swarovski cream pearl, finish with a simple loop. For detailed instructions on how to make a simple loop please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step three: Using the ½?é?ª inch eye pins, you will continue to make links by adding pearls and finishing with simple loops. You will now connect the links to make dangles. Make sure that all of your head pin links are at the bottom of the dangles. Attach the eye pin loops to make the following quantities: 6 single pearl links, 2 two-pearl links, 2 three-pearl links and 1 five-pearl link.

Step four: Find the center link of the necklace (it should be round). Attach the five-pearl link to it using a sterling silver oval jump ring. On the next link on both sides of the center, attach the three-pearl links with jump rings. Continue working out from the center, attach the two-pearl links and then three one pearl links on either side. You now have a vintage looking, wonderful necklace to wear on your special occasion.
