Pendant Necklace Jewelry Project

By:

Create a quick and easy Celtic-inspired pendant necklace from The Bead Studio. Wear one any time of year but be sure to rock it on St. Patrick's Day! This is a great way to celebrate your Irish heritage.

Materials:

  • Yellow Turquoise Pendant
  • 1mm waxed black cotton cord
  • Large copper bead
  • 2 Small copper beads
  • Celtic Diamond Knot Charm
  • Lobster claw clasp
  • Split Ring
  • 2 crimp end tips
  • Oval Jumpring
  • Chain Nose Pliers
  • Split Ring Pliers
  • Crimp Pliers
  • Cocktail Straw

Instructions:

  1. Choose which side of your pendant you want to be the presentation side. Place the charm on the presentation side and then run the 1mm cord through both the stone pendant and the charm.


     
  2. Make sure the charm and pendant are in the center of your cord, grab a hold of both cords and create an overhand knot as close to the pendant/charm as you can. An overhand knot is the same knot you use to tie off a balloon.



     
  3. Slide both ends of the 1mm cord through the larger copper bead and slide to the overhand knot you just created, tie a second overhand knot above the copper bead.



     
  4. Cut an inch and half piece of the cocktail straw off. Slide that piece of cocktail straw onto a single piece of cord. With the cocktail straw touching the overhand knot, place a knot on the cord. Pull the cocktail straw off the cord.


     
  5. Slide one of the smaller copper beads onto the cord that has the new knot on it. Place anothor knot above the copper bead in order to lock the copper bead in place.



     
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 on the other side of the necklace.



     
  7. This step will construct the clasp. The lobster claw is connected to one crimp end using the oval jumpring. The split ring is attached to the other crimp end.



     
  8. The clasp in now going to be attached to the necklace. Crimp pliers work wonders but using a model glue or costume epoxy on the very tip of the cord will help this project last longer. If you don't have crimp pliers and are using chain nose pliers I would really recommend using some sort of glue or epoxy to help secure the crimp ends in place.
