This gorgeous necklace is lightweight, delicate, bright and spring like. Its draping length allows for women of almost any stature to wear it beautifully!
Step one: Cut a length of chain to approximately 22 inches. Cut that piece of chain into 5 pieces. Two will be 3.5 inches, two should be 4.5 inches, and the remaining one will be 6 inches. On the six-inch length, string a sterling silver heart outline bead frame. Find the center link by holding the two ends together, and using a wrapped loop, add a 5mm smoked topaz Swarovski bicone on a head pin to the center link.
Step two: Make two turquoise and two smoked topaz Swarovski bicone links using sterling silver ½?é?ª inch eye pins. 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. Attach the lengths of chain to one another using these links. You will need to have one short and one long on each side, but have fun with it and link them differently to break up the pattern. Attach the chain to the bottom loop of a 3-loop slide tube clasp using sterling silver open jump rings.
Step three: Cut a length of 49-strand Beadalon® .015 to approximately 30 inches. Attach one end to the center loop of the clasp with a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube. Cover with a crimp cover. This strand will be randomly strung with opaque AB matte light lime Delicas, 3mm sterling silver seamless round beads, 6mm turquoise Swarovski crystal bicones, 6mm smoked topaz Swarovski crystal bicones, and ridged Bali melon beads. String about 27 inches of the strand and attach the end to the center loop of the clasp. Cover your crimp with a crimp cover.
Step four: Cut another length of Beadalon® to approximately 33 inches. This strand will be randomly strung with 4mm turquoise and smoked topaz Swarovski crystal bicones, opaque AB matte light lime Delicas and sterling silver wavy links. String approximately 30 inches and attach the other end to the last loop of the clasp. Cover with a crimp cover.
