Spring Has Sprung Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

We have all seen charm bracelets, but how about a charm necklace to usher in springtime? This bright and playful piece can be made as short or long as you like!

Step one: Cut a length of satin to a length of your choosing. We made ours 25-inches long. Tuck one end of the satin into a sterling silver crimp end. Push it in with a needle nose pliers (or pencil) so that it fills the channel of the crimp end. Close the crimp gently with nylon jaw pliers.

Step two: Prepare your dangles by adding a large sterling silver open jump ring to your hummingbird charm. Add two jump rings to the dragonfly and the porcelain leaves. Each of the butterflies get five jump rings and the sunflower is connected to three clover leaf links with the smaller jump rings.

Step three: String a 7mm silver beaded spacer followed by a bird charm, another spacer, a butterfly charm, spacer, leaf pendant, spacer, sunflower, spacer, leaf pendant, spacer, butterfly charm, spacer, dragonfly charm and a final spacer.

Step four: Crimp the other end of your satin cord. Attach the clasp to the crimp ends using small open jump rings.

Step five: Usher in spring in style!
