Try thinking outside the box when it comes to what you'll use in your designs. Here, I used a floral embellishment as a multi-strand reducer.
The warm colors on display in this choker will put you in mind of a Summer Haze. Strands of Beadlinx chain take center stage, while embellishments from Kabela Design create elegant connection points. This intricate look is achieved effortlessly. You can find more inspiration for creating choker necklaces in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Cut a length of Beadlinx 4mm smoke topaz AB druk brass oxide brass chain approximately 10 1/2 inches long. Attach one end on a loop of a Kabela Design antique brass with crystal Jupiter floral embellishment using a 4.5mm antique brass-plated 21 gauge open jump ring. Attach the other end of the chain to another floral embellishment using another jump ring.
Cut another length of Beadlinx chain approximately 10 inches long. Attach a jump ring to each of the next two loops on the floral embellishment at one end of your first strand. Attach this strand to those two jump rings using one jump ring. Repeat on the other end of the chain, with the other floral embellishment.
Repeat step one for the next loop on the floral embellishments of your necklace.
Attach a jump ring to each of the two loops at the end of the floral embellishment on one end of your necklace. Attach the 12x7mm antique brass-plated trigger clasp to these two jump rings using a chain of six jump rings linked together.
Attach a jump ring to each of the two loops at the end of the floral embellishment on the other end of your necklace. Attach one link from the Beadlinx chain to these two jump rings using a chain of 11 jump rings linked together. Open the simple loop at the end of the Beadlinx link and straighten the wire. Trim the wire and then fold the wire tightly and close to the bead.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
