Rose Gold and Silver Necklace

This necklace is really easy to make and great for casual, work or wedding wear.  It also makes a wonderful gift.  It is also a great project for those just getting into jewelry making.  It only takes about 30 minutes to make.

  1 Silver Chain
box of mixed findings
Lobster Clasps and Jump Rings

  4 Rose Gold Beads (Michael's)
*1 Lobster clasp
*4 small jump rings
*4 looped Headpins

*I got all my components fromMichael's

**you can just buy a multi pack that has a selection of findings, like this one on Amazon.

Assorted Beading Tools
Beading Board (I can't live without mine.  It has a ruler.)

Step 1:
Decide where you want the necklace to fall and measure out the chain. Mine is about 16 inches. The pendant is about 2.25 inches.  There are 2 pieces of chain each measuring about 6 inches.

Step 2:
To cut your chain to size, simply grab a link and bend it open to separate the chain you want from the chain that will leftover. Throw away the bent link.

Step 3:
To create your pendant, thread each bead with its own looped headpin.  When you finish off your headpin, just chain them together, like below.  This takes a bit of practice.

Step 4:
With 2 small jump rings, attach your pendant to the chain.

Step 5:
Attach your lobster clasp to one end of the chain with the small jump ring.
On the other end, attach a medium sized jump ring.

You have completed your necklace!
