Heart and Leather Necklace

Materials:

  • 17” length of 1mm brown Greek Leather
  • 8” length of 16-gauge silver ColourCraft™
  • 2” length of 24-gauge silver ColourCraft™
  • One silver 6mm Jump Ring
  • Two silver 1mm Coiled Cord Ends
  • One silver Greek Clasp
  • Assorted wooden and silver large-hole beads
  • Beadstorm™ Round Nose Pliers
  • Beadstorm™ Chain Nose Pliers

Steps:

  1. Using an 8" length of 18 gauge ColourCraft™, fold the wire in half to form a 1/4" loop. Turn the loop upside down and cross the wire ends. Use your fingers to round the shoulders of the heart if necessary. Wrap a 2” length of 24-gauge wire around where the wires cross.
     
  2. Use Round Nose Pliers to make a loop on each end, then place the loop between your finger and thumb and form a spiral. Attach a Jump Ring to the heart charm.
     
  3. Place a Cord End on one end of the Greek Leather. Use Chain Nose Pliers to flatten the first one or two loops on the Cord End to attach it securely.
     
  4. String half of the beads onto the Greek Leather. String the heart onto the necklace center, then string the remaining beads. Attach a Cord End and the clasp to the end of the necklace.
