Poet's Darling Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Nature has long been an inspiration for artists; influencing paintings, poems and even jewelry designs. This necklace follows in that tradition, compositing several nature-themed elements into an elegant and understated design.

Step One: Cut a 19-inch piece of gunmetal-plated figaro chain.

Step Two: Attach the gunmetal pewter flower pinch bail to the light blue with dark blue flower designs small round stoneware pendant. For help using a bail visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Glue a 9mm Swarovski XILION rose flatback in crystal to the center of the flower on the bail. Let dry. String the bail to the center of the chain.

Step Three: Use a daisy metal stamp to stamp three or four flowers onto a sterling silver large rectangle tag charm. For help with metal stamping visit the Handy tips section of the Learning Center. Glue a 7mm Swarovski XILION rose flatback in hematite to the center of three flowers on the tag. Let dry. Attach the tag to the gunmetal-plated pewter simple leaf link using a 6mm gunmetal-plated open jump ring. For help with jump rings visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Use a jump ring to attach the link to the chain, approximately 1 1/2 inches to the left of the pendant.

Step Four: Glue a crystal flatback to the center of the flower on the flower stamped round drop. Let dry. Attach the drop to the chain, approximately 1 1/2 inches to the right of the pendant, using a jump ring.

Step Five: Attach the gunmetal pewter branch charm to the chain approximately one inch to the right of the drop using a jump ring.

Step Six: Use a jump ring to connect the bar end of the gunmetal pewter flower toggle to the chain. Repeat to attach the loop end of the toggle to the chain.
