Starlet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This stunning necklace takes virtually no time to make. In a less than an hour, you can have a piece that will make you the star wherever you go! Use your left over pieces of chain from other projects or mix silver and gold for a fun, different look.

Step one: Cut between 24 and 25 inches of the sterling flat oval link chain (925CH92). Our artist used 48 links. Attach the 25x18mm Swarovski crystal satin rectangle sew-on stone to the chain using sterling silver open jump rings. Set this strand aside for now.

Step two: Cut approximately 11½ inches of the sterling silver oval and round handmade chain (925CH50). Using sterling silver open jump rings, attach a Swarovski 14mm crystal silver shade CAL V SI to the chain.

Step three: Cut three 2-inch lengths of the sterling silver 080 cable chain and slide one end of each onto a jump ring. Attach the jump ring to one of the square rings so that it hangs opposite the handmade chain. Slide the loose ends onto another jump ring and close. Loop another open jump ring through one side of a 16mm Swarovski jet nut square sew-on rhinestone. Attach that jump ring to the one attached to the three chains. On the other side of the rhinestone, add another jump ring.

Step four: Cut approximately four inches of both the flattened diamond link chain and the Swarovski rhodium plated crystal cuplink chain. Attach both of those to an open jump ring and link that jump ring to the one on the rhinestone. On the other end, link the loose ends of chain through another open jump ring and through a 26x21 crystal silver shade cosmic sew-on.

Step five: Cut four more lengths of the 080 cable chain and link it to the other side of the cosmic stone with a jump ring. Attach the other end of the chain to another square ring.

Step six: On the other side of the square ring, you will add three links of the crystal cuplink chain followed by about 2½ inches of the sterling silver 2 to 1 round with twisted link chain. This will then attach to the original length of handmade chain you began with.

Step seven: Hold the first necklace you made up with this one so that you like the way the stones and chain line up, then link them at the back in two places for security. Use sterling silver open jump rings to hold them together. To wear, simply slide over your head.
