Crystal Harvest Necklace
Designer: Kathy Mannix
Note: The head pin originally used in this project has been discontinued and a slightly different item has replaced it. The overall look of the earring will not change much, but the head pin at the bottom will differ slightly from the photo.
Wear your Swarovski crystal harvest necklace with all the latest fall fashions.
- Thread onto the copper headpin (FHP-1035) a daisy (BMB-3217), the Swarvoski bead (SWC-5334), the flower beadcap (PND-7258), the small swirl beadcap (BMB-7053), another daisy, and one of the green Czech glass beads (BCP-3463). Make at least a 4mm inner diameter wire wrap loop so the chain can slide through easily. Trim off excess wire. Set aside.
In order to patina the chain, follow the manufacturers directions on how to properly mix the liver of sulfur gel (XTL-8006). Drop the chain into the mixture until you are happy with the color. This process only takes a few seconds. Make sure you also mix a small amount (1 tsp) of baking soda and water to stop the patina process immediately. Dry the chain with a soft cloth or paper towel. You can use very fine steel wool to take off some of the patina. Hold the steel wool around the chain with one hand and slide the chain through over and over until it is the color you like.
Thread the chain through the wire wrapped loop on the pendant you made earlier.
To connect the clasp to the chain, you will be joining wrapped loops. First, cut a piece of 26 gauge wire (WCR-4226) 3 inches long. Now create the beginning of a loop, and thread it through the end link of the chain, then complete the wrapping of the loop. Now thread on a Czech glass bead, finish by wire wrapping a loop to the small loop on the clasp end (FCL-7065). Repeat this process with the other Czech glass bead and the hook part of the clasp. You're finished!

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.
