24 crystals, stones and pearls 4-6mm
3 rondelles 8mm
4 disk beads 10mm (humblebeads)
Jingle pendant (humblebeads)
1 toggle clasp
21 silver 6mm jump rings
21 silver 1" eye pins
2 silver 5mm spacers
15-20 nickel seed beads
1. On an eye pin string a spacer, disk bead and a spacer. Trim wire to a 1/4", use round nose pliers to form a loop. Attach to the Jingle pendant.
2. Randomly string 1 or 2 beads per eye pin, use the seed beads for an occasional accent. Trim and form loops for all of the links. For a 16" necklace I created 20 links. Arrange the links into the desired order, alternate shapes, sizes and colors for a random pattern. Add more links for a longer necklace.
3. Attach each link with jump rings. Use jump rings to attach the toggle claps.
Designer tip: I used base metal findings for this project, which is a gift for a pre-teen on my list. You can use sterling silver if you prefer to work with precious metals.
