Instructions

There is extra chain allotted for this project. If you want to make your necklace longer, simply increase the chain measurements in the first step.
  1. Begin by cutting your chain into the following lengths: 4 sections that are 1.5 inches long each and 2 sections that are 4 inches long each.
  2. Using the waffle face on the 12 face hammer, texturize your Vintaj natural brass north star stamping. Hammer it pretty heavily so the entire surface is covered in the waffle pattern.
  3. Use the Vintaj Relief Block to sand the surface of your star stamping.
  4. Place onto an eye pin 1 Preciosa 6mm bicone in jet hematite and then create a simple wire loop after the bead. Make a large enough loop so that the star stamping can be linked to it and will hang nicely.
  5. Open the simple wire loop that you just made and link it to your star stamping, close the link. Open the loop on the other side of the bead and link this to a Vintaj 10mm jump ring. Close the loop. Open the attached jump ring and slip onto it the end chain links from two of your 1.5" chain segments. Close the jump ring.
  6. Slip the ends of both chains (from the last step) into the hole of your large hole bead and then slide it down to rest against the large jump ring.
  7. Place onto an eye pin 1 Preciosa 6mm bicone in jet hematite and then create a simple wire loop after the bead. Make a total of 4 of these. To attach them in the upcoming steps, simply open their simple loops the same way you would open jump rings and then close them back up in the same manner.
  8. Attach a bicone segment (from above) to the ends of your connected chain segments. On the other side of each bicone segment, connect another 1.5" length of chain. Connect to these chain ends another bicone segment each and then a 4" length of chain to each. At the end of each 4" length of chain connect 1/2 of your clasp. To attach the clasp, open the end chain link (just like a jump ring) and attach it to the clasp.
  9. All done! Enjoy!
