I made this bib necklace a while ago linking together the patina finish hibiscus pieces. I wanted to make this necklace with bridal jewelry as inspiration. I chose to use our matte gold finish hibiscus and a smaller beaded matte gold chain. Once the necklace was complete it was lovely and could absolutely be worn as is, but you know me. :) I wanted a little something extra, so I made several rock crystal star cut charms to drip sparkles from the necklace. Now it's perfect!
The trickiest part of this necklace was laying it out and not losing my place every time I picked it up to attach jump rings. This necklace uses the Hibiscus Bib printable pattern.

Supplies you’ll need:

  • 56 4mm jump rings
  • 18 (or more) open hibiscus focals
  • 14" of chain
  • lobster clasp
  • 7 rock crystal star cut 8mm
  • 7 2" headpins
  • bent nose, chain nose, round nose pliers
  • wire cutters

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step

Step 1

Print the pattern and lay out your design and open all of your jump rings.
If you are using your own design, lay it out and take a picture of your design. This will help you keep our place when linking together the focals with jump rings.
Each time after adding a jump ring, I recommend laying down your design. This seems tedious, I know, but it will save you from having to fix mistakes later.

Step 2

Take a 7" length of chain, using one of the chain links like a jump ring, attach the chain to the top petal of the outermost top hibiscus. Repeat this for the other side of the necklace.
Attach the lobster clasp to the chain on your dominant hand's side using a jump ring. On the other length of chain, attach a jump ring to be used for hooking the lobster clasp to.

Step 3

Time to embellish the bottom of your necklace! I made 3 wire wrapped charms using 2" headpins to attach to the bottom of the 3 middle hibiscus. For the outer hibiscus I made each a wire wrapped bead link using a 2" headpin that I snipped the head off of combined with a wire wrapped charm using the same 2" headpin. I attached all charms and charm combinations using a 4mm jump ring.
