Flower Blossom Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This delicate design combines the clean simplicity of sterling chain with the handmade look of Hill Tribe silver and the polished glimmer of Swarovski crystal to create a beautiful finished piece.

Step one: Create the links of your necklace by placing a 3mm sterling silver roundel followed by an 8mm Swarovski bicone, (you will use all bicones, so which color you begin with is not important) and another roundel. 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. Complete six links with the same pattern until you have used all the crystals.

Step two: Cut two lengths of chain to about 3 1/4 inches or 31 links. Attach one length of chain to each side of the toggle clasp using sterling silver open jump rings. On the other end of the chain, attach the links with the ruby Swarovski crystal by opening the simple loop and connecting it to the last link in the chain.

Step three: Cut two more lengths of chain to approximately 1 1/2 inches or 14 links, attach that chain to each of the ruby links and on the other end attach the tanzanite links. Repeat this step with the violet links.

Step four: Cut one more length of 14 links and attach it to one of the violet links. Attach the remaining chain to the other link and count down 14 links on the chain. Attach a sterling silver open jump ring to that link and the end of the other segment so they are joined together. String the pendant onto the remaining tail of chain, loop it back to the jump ring, and attach it to the necklace, closing the loop. In a few simple steps you will have a gorgeous necklace to wear or give as a gift that will be treasured for a lifetime.
