DIY Dark Love Necklace

What you need

3 Flower Life 25mm pink/purple ball shaped photobeads with asters and chrysanthemums
2 black 13mm glass ball shaped beads with stylized floral ornament
1 black satin flower
1 copper plated toggle clasp
45cm (17.8") copper plated antique look chain with large links
28cm (11") copper plated 0,5mm (0.24") wire
2 copper plated 6mm jump rings
15cm (6") black thread (to attach the flower to the chain)

TOOLS
Flat nose pliers
Round nose pliers
Wire cutters
Sewing needle



Instructions

1. Take 22cm (8.7″) of the chain. Using one 6mm jump ring attach one part of the toggle clasp to the chain.

2. Use 7cm (2.75″) of wire to form a wrapped loop that attaches to the free end of the chain piece.

3. String 1 photobead and make a wrapped loop that attaches to one end of a 2cm (0.8″) chain piece.

4. Repeat step 2, step 3 and step 2 again.

5. String 1 photobead and make a wrapped loop that attaches to one end of a 9cm (3.5″) chain piece.

6. Use 4cm (1.65″) of wire to form a wrapped loop that attaches to the free end of the 9cm chain piece. String one black glass bead and make a wrapped loop.

7. Use 4cm (1.65″) of wire to form a wrapped loop that attaches to the loop you made for the first black bead. String the second black bead and make a wrapped loop that attaches to the last piece of chain.

8. Using the second 6mm jump ring attach the second part of the clasp.

9. Attach (sew) the flower to the chain between photobeads and black beads using thread and needle. Hide the excess thread inside the flower. Trim the thread ends if they are too long.
