Project Instructions

Cut gunmetal chain to desired necklace length. Attach using a jump ring the closure to one end, add jump ring to the other side of the chain for the closure to attach to. Make sure rings are closed securely with the pliers.

Take the brushed gold chain and wrap the gunmetal chain with the chain to create a twisted chain effect. Attach the gold chain to the jump ring at the end of each side of the necklace. Remove any excess chain.

Attach the cross pendant using a jump ring in the center of the gunmetal/brushed gold chain. Close jump ring securely.

Cut and attach using jump rings sections of the copper and gunmetal chains to the necklace so that they create a layered multi-chain effect. 

Open a jump ring and attach the fleur de lis charm to the center of the gunmetal chain. Close jump ring securely.

Take a headpin and slide a gemstone or crystal onto the headpin. Use the round nose pliers to bend the wire into a loop right above the gemstone or crystal. Attach to the chain throughout the necklace. Use the side cutters to trim excess wire from the headpin and secure the end of the headpin with the pliers. Repeat for each gemstone (5) and crystal (20) at the bottom of the bow.

Use the same process in #6 to place the remaining gemstones and crystals onto the chain. Repeat for as many gemstone and crystals as wanted for the necklace.

Attach one of the gemstones in the center of the copper necklace. The cross pendant, fleur de lis charm and gemstone should all line up in the center of the necklace when complete.
