step 1: preparing your materials
Prepare your work environment. Organizing your tools and materials will help
you work faster and more efficient.
I choose oval 9X7mm flat loops chain and cut 2 pieces of 10mm long each.
To create this necklace I choose “heart chain” by using a cutting tool I cut and seperate 4 big hearts and 2 small ones. The heart links must be closed.
Of course, you are free to use any other shape of chain in order to create this necklace.
Step 2: connecting the necklace base
Use plier tool to open 5 mm jump ringsand connect the big heart link with the 14 mm rivoli stone setting.
Connect all of the 4 big heart links in the center of the necklace, and place the smaller heart links at the far end of the center piece.
Now you can connect the small heart link and a 10 cm long chain on each side.
Connect the clasp with the same 5 mm jump ring, by opining and closing them with the plaier tool.
Step 3: Connecting the Stone settings to the necklace base
Take the 39ss stone setting, and by using jump rings connect them to the buttom of the big heart links.
Do this with all 4 big harts
The base of the necklace is ready! Well done.
Step 4: Setting the stones
The last step is setting the stones.
Place the stone in the center of the stone setting and with the help of the setting tool bend the prongs towards the stone in order to embed it.
Bend the prongs gently to make sure you don't damage the stone or crack the plating in this process.
I used spring color combination with fuchsia, golden shadow and blue zircon. to create a more glamours look, you can use silver shad with crystal colors to your preferance.
Enjoy your new beautiful Swarovski necklace!
