Let it Snow Necklace
Designer: Kathy Mannix
This beautiful snowflake inspired necklace is made with white filigree stampings and sparkling Swarovski crystals.
NOTE: The chain used in this project has been discontinued and a slightly different item has replaced it. The overall look of the necklace will not change much, but the chain will differ slightly from the photo.
- Place one of the small white stampings (PND-00146) on a flat surface face up.
Pick up one of the crystal flatbacks with a pair of tweezers (XTL-4000). Use a toothpick to dab a small dot of glue (XTL-1053) onto the flatback. Please see photo for specific placement of each flatback or be creative and make whatever design you like. You have at least 5 minutes to make adjustments before the glue starts to set. For maximum strength bond, allow 24-72 hours for complete curing.
Next, open one of the oval jump rings (FJR-3964). Link the jump ring onto one of the outer holes on the larger filigree stamping (PND-00132) and also onto one of the holes of the smaller filigree stamping (PND-00146). Close jump ring. The larger and smaller filigree stampings should now be connected with an oval jump ring.
Open another jump ring. Skip over one of the holes on the outer large filigree stamping. As you did in the previous step, link the jump ring to both the larger filigree and the other smaller filigree stamping. Close jump ring.
Fold the chain in half (CHA-2638). Cut the center link of chain. You should now have 2 pieces of chain 6 inches in length.
Open another jump ring. Link the jump ring onto one end of chain and the opposite side onto one of the smaller filigree stampings. Close the jump ring. Repeat this step for the other side.
Open a jump ring and link onto to one of the end links of chain. Close jump ring.
Open the jump ring on the lobster clasp. Link the jump ring onto the other end link of chain. Close jump ring. 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.
