This is a necklace created using linking techniques. In this tutorial you will learn a jewelry making idea how to put up together a simple jewelry piece using crystals, beads and chains. The chain is chain necklace is created part by part. You’ll also learn how to create a simple pendant by combing beads and semi-precious stones. Actually, with this jewelry making idea you can use whatever kinds of beads you have. Have fun!
Start assembling the beads and crystals. With the head pins slide in 1 bead and 1 crystal and make a loop with the excess wire. Create 7 sets of beads and crystals.
Cut different lengths of chain, according to your preferred length like shown in the picture and group the chain in one jump ring.
With your nose pliers, wrap your wire neatly and tightly onto the jump ring.
Slide in the square shaped semi-precious stone, and on the other create a loop. Loop the wire twice to make the pendant sturdy enough. Then cut excess wire.
Now we’re going to create the first part of the chain necklace.
Cut 8cm small chain and divide the chains into 2 equal parts. Cut 4 inches of wire and create a loop on one end and link it to the end of the chain. Slide in a crystal into the wire and create a loop on the other end and link it again on the other half of the chain.
Repeat these steps and create 5 chains with crystals.
Gather the chains and group the ends into a jump ring. This is the first part of your chain necklace with a length of about 10cm. Repeat the steps and create another set.
Attach the chains onto the pendant's bail.
Cut several inches of wire; create a loop on one end and attach it to the jump ring at the ends of the chains. Slide in the oval bead and create a loop then cut excess wire.
For the second part of the chain necklace cut 2 x 10cm bigger chain. Slightly open the loop from the oval bead and link it to the chain. At the other end of the chain, attach the barrel clasp using jump rings.
