simply charming neutral ombré necklace

Create a fashion statement with Create Your Style™ Swarovski®! Make a drop cluster of sparkling charms and allow them to dangle from a matte metal element to enhance the elegance of your Simply Charming Neutral Ombré Necklace!
Step 1

Cut an eight-link section from your chain spool.

Step 2

Attach one end of the chain section to a hammered metal disc with a jump ring.
TIP: To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp the jump ring on both sides with chain nose pliers and twist the ring open, from side-to-side. Never pull the jump ring which can cause distortion.

Step 3

Now, attach a rhinestone charm to each link of the chain section in an ombré fashion, as shown, or in order as desired.

Step 4

Add a small 4mm jump ring to the top of the hammered metal disc.

Step 5

Cut two 1" [2.54 cm] of chain.

Step 6

Open another 4mm jump ring, add one end of each 1" [2.54 cm] chain piece, then slide onto the jump ring at the top of the disc. Close the jump ring.

Step 7

Make two bead links from bicone crystal beads.
TIP: Slide three bicone beads onto an eye pin. Bend the wire of the eye pin in a 90° angle just above the bead. Grasp the eye pin wire, about 3/8"-½" [0.3 cm-1.3 cm] from the bend, between the jaws of your round nose pliers. Rotate the pliers toward you, keeping a firm grip on the wire, until a small loop is formed. Trim excess wire.

Step 8

Attach one bicone bead link to the end opposite the disc of each 1" [2.54 cm] chain piece. To do this, carefully open a loop on the bead link, slide onto the last link of the chain and close the loop.

Step 9

Cut two additional chain pieces to desired length for your necklace. Attach one end to the top of each bead link.

Step 10

Finally, on one side add a jump ring and add a jump ring with a clasp on the other side.
