Moon & Stars Keepsake Locket Necklace

About this design:

I made a similar necklace as this for my sister last year. She loves it! Using the fabulous Patricia Healey locket makes this necklace a little more unique rather than going with a standard locket. This is also a great focal to use for a longer necklace.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • 4 3" lengths of copper wire
  • 18" of chain
  • 1/2"-3/4" piece of chain to fit through the bail on locket

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Turn your chain into a finished necklace by attaching a clasp. Since I picked a chain that is too thick to fit through the bail on the locket, we'll get creative with wire wrapping to attach the locket to the chain. Just clip the middle 1" of the chain (where the pendant will go). Wire wrap one end of the scrap chain to the main necklace chain, then slide it through the bail of the locket. Then wire wrap the other end, connecting the chains to form a completed necklace.

    This is really wonderful. It’s the “poster child” for Keep It Simple. Sometimes we forget that simple is the best way to let a piece really shine. :)
