Radiant Ruby Necklace
Designer: Julie Bean
If you are looking for a classically beautiful necklace that is elegant with just the right amount of sparkle, then you have found it in the Radiant Ruby Necklace. This would be the perfect accessory for a special evening out, holiday party, or an evening at the theater.
- Cut your gold scalloped bar chain so that it is 18 links long. Next, cut two lengths of your gold krinkle chain, 3 inches long each.
Please watch the video: How to Wire Wrap a Briolette. Cut a 3 inch length of 24 gauge gold craft wire and wire wrap a SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS ruby briolette. Snip off excess wire with flush cutters. Create a total of 9 of these.
Open a 3mm gold jump ring and link it to one of the wrapped briolettes and also the middle ring between the 9th and 10th scalloped bar chain link on your cut piece. Repeat this with all of your briolettes, connecting them to every other middle ring on your scalloped bar chain starting from the middle (where you just hung a briolette) and working outwards on both sides of the necklace. See photo.
Open another 3mm jump ring and connect it to the end scallop bar on one side of your necklace and the end chain link on one of your cut krinkle chain lengths. Close the jump ring. Repeat this on the other side of the necklace.
Open a 6mm jump ring and connect it to the end chain link of your krinkle chain (one of the krinkle chain ends is quite narrow, just slip it through the part of the link that it will fit into). Close the jump ring.
Go to the other side of your necklace and repeat the previous step but also slip onto the jump ring your lobster clasp with the heart detailing. Close the jump ring.
All done! Enjoy your pretty new necklace.

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.
