Swan Lake Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Layered embellishments tell a daring style story in this eye-catching necklace. Cynthia glued filigree and other embellishments together for an unforgettable focal piece. Using embellishments in unique ways is a great way to create a style that's all your own. You can see more ideas for using filigree embellishments in your jewelry designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.

Step one:
Glue the antique gold-plated brass right side wing embellishment and the antique gold-plated brass left side wing embellishment to the back of the Kabela Design antique brass trance filigree using 5-minute two-part epoxy. Glue the large brass swan embellishment to the front center of the filigree using epoxy. Cut the loop off of the Kabela Design antique brass 2 layer filigree flower with crystals charm and then glue it to the front of the filigree, just above the swan's head. Allow to dry.

Step two:
Slide a Swarovski 8mm round pearl in Crystal Iridescent Red onto a 2-inch antique brass-plated 20 gauge head pin, followed by a brass cutie bead cap. Make a wrapped loop at the top of the beads. Attach this dangle to the bottom of your filigree focal (between the wings) using two TierraCast medium oval brass oxide pewter open jump rings linked together. For help opening and closing jump rings, see our video tutorial.

Step three:
Cut a length of antique brass cog chain approximately 9 inches long. Attach it to one side of the top of your filigree focal using an oval jump ring. Attach half of the TierraCast brass oxide pewter craftsman toggle clasp set to the other end using an oval jump ring. Repeat this step on the other side of the necklace.
