Antique Damask Necklace


About this design:

The swirling sands in this pendant were begging to have some color dripping off the the bottom loops. I stayed with the same style and theme for these charms and selected the simple drops in a couple earthy colors - turquoise & cantaloupe.

The products in this design are listed below.


Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Attach 2 cantaloupe color drops to the third loops in on either side of the pendant using a small matching gold jump ring. Attach 3 turquoise color drops to the first loops in on either side of the pendant and the middle using a small matching gold jump ring.
Step 2:
Using a jump ring, connect the damask Y-connector to the coordinating pendant.
  Step 3:
Decide how long you want your necklace and cut 2 lengths of chain that are 2x the length needed. String one length of chain through a loop and connect the ends using another small jump ring or by making a wire wrapped bead link. Repeat on the other loop and attach clasp.

    I had to buy the components. I just love this necklace. I sell the jewelry I make, and I never actually wear jewelry. But I love this necklace so much I think I will make another one and keep it for myself.
