Vintage Beauty Necklace Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
You'll feel like you've stepped out of your favorite classic 1950s film when you put on this necklace with its antique brass focal pieces. Its elegance and classic styling make it a great accessory to any vintage-inspired wedding gown.
Step One: Cut a 23-inch piece of ZambaPro 49 .019 jewelry wire. Crimp one end of the wire to a 6mm antique brass-plated open jump ring with a 2x2mm gold-filled crimp tube. For help with crimp tubes visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Trim any excess wire.
Step Two: String a 6mm faceted round in crystal, a 6mm XILION bicone in crystal golden shadow, a 7mm round pearl in cream and a crystal golden shadow bicone on the wire. Repeat 19 times. Finish by stringing a faceted round on the wire and crimping the end to a jump ring with a crimp tube. Trim any excess wire.
Step Three: Use a jump ring to attach a 1-inch section (approximately five links) of antique brass-plated cable chain to the antique brass elegance link. Attach the open end of the chain to an antique brass flower with center crystal link with a jump ring. Attach the other end of the link to the jump ring at one end of the crystal and pearl strand. Repeat this step on the other side to complete the necklace.
