Instructions

Start with the altered blank (PND-7058). Use your texturing hammer (XTL-0256) with the side with the small circles hammer the altered blank until it is covered completely. (HINT: you can't go wrong when texturing, as you can have as little or as much of the design as you like). With a marker, place a dot at the center of the altered blank, at 1/2 inch off the right of the top hole just 1/16th of an inch from the edge. (Please see photo illustration) and one more directly below the center dot just 1/16th of an inch off of the edge. (Please see photo illustration). Using your hole punch pliers (XTL-0046) punch through each of the dots. Use your hole punch pliers to make a larger punch hole in the center of the filigree cream flowers (PND-00174). Set aside.Cut out the perimeter of flowers, leaving the 4 center flowers intact from the large green filigree stamping (PND-9880). (Please see photo illustration). Lay this on top of the altered blank off center of the center hole.Start with a rivet, thread on to it a daisy washer (PND-7265), a flat brass washer (PND-7267 and then the cream filigree flower (PND-00174) all facedown. Thread the rivet through the hole to the right of the top hole. Slide this entire piece onto a bench block (XTL-6092) holding it with your fingers so the rivet doesn’t come out. Once it is on the bench block, snip off the rivet, leaving only 1/16th of an inch. Tap gently with your mini ball pein hammer (XTL-0002) until the rivet is flattened and flush with the back of the altered blank. Take another rivet and place on it a small daisy washer, the leaf vine (PND-7249), a flat brass washer, and the purple filigree stamping (PND-00176). Thread through the green filigree flower and the on the altered blank earlier. Make sure the rivet goes through part of the green flower to keep it offset. Slide this entire piece onto your bench block (XTL-6092) carefully holding the rivet in place with your fingers. Snip off the rivet, leaving 1/16th of an inch. Tap gently with your mini ball pein hammer (XTL-0002) until the rivet is flattened and flush with the back of the altered blank. Slide a cream filigree flower (PND-00174) under the green flower centering it over the hole on the bottom of the blank (see photo). Now take the last rivet, place a small daisy washer, and a daisy flower (PND-7271) on the rivet facedown. Run the rivet through the center of the cream filigree flower. (See photo illustration) Slide this entire piece onto the bench block. Again, make sure you hold the rivet with your fingers so it doesn’t come out. Snip off the rivet, leaving 1/16th of an inch. Tap gently with your mini ball pein hammer (XTL-0002) until the rivet is flattened and flush with the back of the altered blank. Wire wrap a loop onto each of the 2 small green briolettes with the 26 gauge wire. Wire wrap a Swarovski margarita crystal (SWC-85100) vertically (see photo). Set all 3 pieces aside.Cut a 7 inch long piece of 20 gauge wire. Wire wrap the beginning loop and link onto the top of the hole of the pendant. Close loop. String on a brass bead cap (BMB-4255) and the Purple Velvet crystal (SWC-0894). Finish by wire wrapping a beginning loop onto the large brass jump ring(PND-7108), link on one of the green briolettes you wrapped earlier. Close loop.Now take the chain (CHA-7111) and make 2 even lengths. Cut 3 links from one of the chains. Set aside. Add a connector (FCO-4621) to the chain you just cut 3 links off of using an open jump ring (FJR-5340). Before closing this jump ring add on one of the green briolettes and the Swarovski Margarita bead you made earlier. Close jump ring.Open another small open jump ring, add the 3 links of chain to the bottom of the connector. Close jump ring.Open one of the 2 twisted open jump rings (FJR-5395) and place onto the end of the chain that has the connector. Slip jump ring onto the large closed jump ring (PND-7108) and close. Now put the other twisted open jump ring onto the other piece of chain (without connector) and slip it onto the large closed jump ring (PND-7108) and close. Add the clasp to the ends of the chain and your finished. (HINT: one chain will be slightly longer because of the added connector. You can just remove 2 of the links if you would like both chains to match in length.)Please see photo for more detailed information about this project.
