About this design:

A beautiful dahlia in a peachy salmon color inspired by a farmers market favorite. The simple things in life can bring unmeasurable joy.

Dahlia Pendant - Humblebeads, Glass spacer & leaf heapin - Thornburg Bead Studio, 21 Rizo Seed Beads in the main color, 6 Rizo Seed Beads in the accent color, 8-10mm gunmetal jump rings, 9-7mm gunmetal jump rings, 1 lobster clay clasp, 2-5mm gunmetal jump ring, 16" gunmetal chain, 22 gauge gunmetal wire

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
1. Cut 6 pieces of 3" wire. String 3 Rizo beads onto the wire, pull both ends of the wire
toward each other to form a loop. Use round now pliers to form a loop on top.
Step 2:
2. Create a wrapped looped with the remaining wire. Turn the top loop so that it lines up
vertically with the bottom Rizo bead. Repeat step 1 & 2 five more times.

Create 6 single wrapped dangles with the accent color on 2" pieces of wire. Make sure the loop on the small dangles are a simple loop that can open and close. Wrap the other wire under the loop.
Step 3:
3. Create three jump ring rosette: Open one 7mm jump ring and attach it to another, add a
third jump ring though the center of both the first jump rings.
Step 4:
4. String the jump ring rosette onto the headpin. Create a large wrapped loop at the top of the headpin.Use memory wire cutters or heavy duty wire cutters to trim the wire on the glass headpins. Be careful to not wrap the headpin too tight, it is possible to break them.
Step 5:
5. Cut a 6" piece of wire. Create a large wrapped loop through the top of the pendant. String on a jump ring rosette, lampwork spacer and jump ring rosette. Create a wrapped loop to finish the pendant.
Step 6:
6. Attach the pendant to a 10mm jump ring.

Cut six 1" pieces of chain. Attach two pieces of chain to the first jump ring and close the ring. Attach the pieces of chain with 10mm jump rings, adding a 3 Rizo dangle to the bottom of each ring. Add the accent Rizo dangles to the center of each chain piece.

Attach the remaining chain to the last jump rings. Attach the lobster claw clasp with and 10mm jump ring to the end of the chain.

Optional: add another 3 Rizo dangle to the jump ring by the clasp.
