Whisper Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This stunning necklace is surprisingly simple to make! If you need a last minute gift that will leave an impression, this is just the thing for you!

Step one: Begin by linking six jump rings together. Add an 8mm vine briolette bail to a 15.4x14mm Swarovski aquamarine flat briolette pendant and attach the bail to one end of the linked jump rings.

Step two: Attach the 9x5mm Swarovski briolette pendants to the remaining jump rings, and attach two of those to the third jump ring from the bottom and one on the fourth. String this completed dangle onto a light blue silk cord.

Step three: Pinch on the 6mm vine briolette bails to the 11x10mm flat briolette light rose pendants and set them aside. Working from the center of the cord out, make the same pattern on both sides of the dangle in the center. String a 5mm bright sterling roundel followed by a 6mm sterling silver round matte satin bead, one of the briolettes on a jump ring and another matte silver bead.

Step four: Make a knot approximately 3-4 inches from the end of the cord on each side. Add a matte satin bead, tie another knot, add another matte bead and finish with a final knot. To wear this beautiful necklace at any length you like, just tie it in a bow. Total length: 30 inches (will lose length with the bow)
