Nunn Design and Epoxy Clay Fire-Polished Necklace with Beadlinx Chain
designed byBecky Dahl
TechniqueTwo-Part Epoxy Clay
Approximate Size20 Inches
The beaded look of this design reminds me of old European cobblestone plazas, soaking up the warmth of a slow sunset!
Nunn Design's bezel pendants open up all kinds of design possibilities when designing jewelry. Fill them up with epoxy clay and embed all kinds of different materials. Becky used small Czech glass fire-polished beads with epoxy clay to create this focal. To complete the design, she mixed her own beaded links featuring the same fire-polished beads with Beadlinx chain.
Fill the Nunn Design antique gold-plated pewter half circle grande bezel pendant with a thin layer of epoxy clay. Add two rows of Czech glass 3mm matte metallic antique gold fire-polished beads into the epoxy clay at the top of the pendant. Working your way down, add two rows of Czech glass 3mm milky jonquil celsian fire-polished beads and two rows of Czech glass 3mm sueded gold crystal fire-polished beads. Allow the epoxy clay to dry.
Add a matte metallic antique gold fire-polished bead to a 2-inch gold-plated brass 21 gauge eye pin, followed by a milky jonquil Celsian bead, two sueded gold crystal beads, a milky jonquil Celsian bead, and a matte metallic antique gold bead. Make a simple loop at the top of the beads. Repeat 7 times for a total of 8 links.
Open the loop of one of the beaded links you made and attach it to the Beadlinx link. Attach two links of Beadlinx chain to the end of this beaded link. Repeat this step twice, attaching the links to the last link added each time.
Attach a beaded link you made to the last Beadlinx chain added. Then, add a 3 ¾-inch length of Beadlinx chain to the end of this beaded link. Add half of the TierraCast gold-plated pewter toggle set to the end of your chain using a jump ring.
Repeat steps 3-5 to make the chain for the other side of the necklace.
