Colorful Love Necklace


Materials:

  • #28-866-F Heart-shape blown glass beads handmade by David Christensen
  • #47-301-SP* 16-gauge round wire, nickel silver
  • #40-099-12-9 3.3mm flattened long-and-short chain, gunmetal
  • #26-822* 3x4mm faceted rectangle beads, copper plate

  • #37-415-9 1.5" thin head pins, gunmetal

*Patina items with Liver of Sulfur #86-354 or WinOX #86-343.

Tools:

  • Flat-nose plier
  • chain-nose pliers
  • round-nose pliers
  • side cutters
  • chasing hammer
  • steel block
  • 2-hole metal punch
  • patina supplies


Instructions:


I made the "beefy-sized" eye pins out of 16g nickel-silver wire (could easily be made out of sterling silver); I formed one side of the loop, hammered it, patinaed it, added the beads, formed the second loop, hammered it, and finally touched up the patina.

I bent the two-loop bars to create bails for the heart beads, and the plating does chip off a bit, but a quick touch up of patina takes care of the problem.
