Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Use the Heirloom Patina Kit, alter the color of the 2 swooping swallow pendants.
Step 2:
Add pattern to the circle altered blank by running it through the Sizzix BIGKick using your favorite embossing folder. After you have run it through the BIGKick, lightly buff the raised surface to make the pattern pop.
Step 3:
Attach all components together using jump rings to link everything.
Alternate Idea - Instead of using chain at the back of the necklace consider using silk cord or leather :)
