Vivienne Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Sometimes the simplest material make for the most stunning jewelry designs. Cheri layered silver chain and used chandelier findings as links in her glamorous necklace. Using different styles of chain adds interest to this shiny piece. You can see more ways to use chandelier components in your designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.

Step one:
Cut a length of 2.5x3.5mm silver-plated square wire cable chain approximately 7 1/2 inches long. Attach one end to the tapered end of the silver-plated triangle scroll chandelier link with 3 hoops using a sterling silver 4.30mm open jump ring. For help opening and closing jump rings, please see our Handy Tip Video. Attach the other end to a 925/10 silver-filled 5x9mm lobster clasp with open jump ring using a 4.30mm jump ring. Repeat this step, only instead of attaching a lobster clasp to the end of the chain, attach a 925/10 silver-filled 5x9mm lobster clasp with open jump ring using a 4.30mm jump ring.

Step two:
Cut a length of 2.3mm silver-plated Figaro chain approximately 8 inches long. Attach one end to the inside loop of one of your chandeliers using a 4.30mm jump ring. Attach the other end to the inside loop of the other chandelier using a 4.30mm jump ring.

Step three:
Cut a length of square wire cable chain approximately 8 1/2 inches long. Attach one end to the center loop of the chandelier on one side of the necklace using a 4.30mm jump ring. Attach the other end to the center loop on the other chandelier using a 4.30mm jump ring.

Step four:
Cut a length of silver-plated 1+1 infinity link chain approximately 8 3/4 inches long. Attach one end to the outside loop of the chandelier on one side of the necklace using a 4.30mm jump ring. Attach the other end to the outside loop on the other chandelier using a 4.30mm jump ring.
