Christmas Wishes Necklace
Project N1024 [Skill Level: Beginner]
Designer: Megan Milliken
Classic Christmas tidings adorn this festive necklace, with a little Santa charm and a pretty Czech fire polish bead dangle.
You will also need a paintbrush for this project.
- Before you begin, watch the video: How to Apply Collage Images to Nunn Design Channel Bead Cores.
Cut the graphic that says "May Christmas joys be many" from your Nunn Design "Winter Holiday" collage sheet, and apply it to an antique 22k gold plated channel bead pendant as demonstrated in the video. Have the left edge overlap the right edge of the collage image so that the written message is not cut off.
Allow the glue and sealant to dry before moving on.
Open the loop on your channel bead pendant and insert both end links in a 3' length of Nunn Design antique gold plated oval cable chain. Close the loop.
Use a 6mm gold plated jump ring to hang an antique silver plated pewter Saint Nick charm from the 4th link on the left side of the chain from the channel pendant.
Place a 6mm round Czech fire polish light garnet bead onto a 22k gold plated 1", 21 gauge head pin. Create a simple wire loop after the bead.
Use the wire loop you created to hang the bead from the same link as the charm, just above the charm.
Choose your favorite collage art with a channel bead pendant and chain to match.
When substituting in items, pay attention to sizes and styles to make sure all your pieces will fit together.

Tip: Check package quantities for each component. You may have extra material to make more than one finished project, or will have leftovers for other projects. In some cases, adding on just one more package of a component may be all you need to make multiple pieces.
