Step By Step Instructions

Note: You do not need to use flush cutters to cut the Vintaj Chain. You merely open and close the links of the chain to separate it into sections. No waste! It works easiest if you use 2 pairs of chain nose pliers, one in each hand, since the chain is strong.

You will assemble the filigree wrapped pendant first, then the inner chain, then the outer chain, add the clasp, and finally, add the dangle on the end of the pendant.

1. Assemble the filigree wrapped pendant:

  • Turn in the edges of the Passion Flower Filigree to about the same size as the lampwork glass bead. You may use your round nose pliers or bail- making pliers. It works best to turn one side, then the other, alternately repeating sides.
  • Set the focal lampwork glass bead inside the filigree. Crimp down the edges to secure the bead around the front of the bead, using your fingers or chain nose pliers, one petal at a time.
  • Make sure that all sides of the filigree are symmetrical and holding the focal bead securely.

2. Assemble the following units on 1" eye pins:

  • SET 1 (make 8 of these units): a 6mm Daisy Bead Cap, a Chrysolite Satin 6x8mm Glass Rondelle and a 6mm Daisy Bead Cap.
  • SET 2 (make 2 of these units): an Indian Sapphire 4mm Bicone Crystal, a 7mm Square Bead Cap, a Dark Red 6x8mm Glass Rondelle, a 7mm Square Bead Cap and an Indian Sapphire 4mm Bicone Crystal.
  • SET 3 (make 2 of these units): a Chrysolite Satin 4mm Crystal, a Pineapple Bead, a Chrysolite Satin 4mm Crystal.
  • SET 4 (make 2 of these units): a Siam 4mm Bicone Crystal, a Pineapple Bead, a Siam 4mm Bicone Crystal.

3. Assemble one of these on a 1" head pin: a Indian Sapp 4mm Bicone Crystal, a 7mm Square Bead Cap, a Dark Red 6x8mm Glass Rondelle and a 7mm Square Bead Cap.

4. Open and close the links on the Vintaj Chain and separate the chain into the following sections:

  • 2 sections of 3 links each
  • 2 sections of 6 links each
  • 2 sections of 7 links each
  • 4 sections of 8 links each
  • 8 sections of 9 links each
  • 2 sections of 10 links each
  • 1 section of 11 links

5. Assemble the inner chain of the necklace:

  • Take one of the 3-link chain sections you made in Step 4. Open the link and carefully insert it into an opening in the Passion Flower Filigree, on one side of one of the petals. (You may need to open the filigree wrap a teeny bit to make this happen.) Close the chain link (and the filigree if you opened it slightly).
  • Now attach the following to the end of the 3-link chain: a SET 1 unit, a 8-link chain section, a SET 1 unit, a 10-link chain section, a SET 1 unit, a 8-link chain section, a SET 1 unit, a 6-link chain section.
  • Repeat the same steps above. This time you will attach another SET 1 unit to the other side of one of the petals in the Passion Flower Filigree.

6. Assemble the outer chain of the necklace:

  • Take one of the 7-link chain sections you made in Step 4. Open one of the end links, and insert it into an opening of the Passion Flower Filigree (the inner edge of the next petal to where you attached the inner chain in Step 5). Close the chain link. Refer to the website picture if it helps.
  • Now attach the following to the other end of the 7-link chain: a SET 2 unit, a 9-link chain section, a SET 3 unit, a 9-link chain section, a SET 4 unit, a 9-link chain section.
  • Repeat the same steps above. This time you will attach another 7-link chain section to the other side of the Passion Flower Filigree (the inner edge of the next petal to where you attached the inner chain in Step 5).

7. Assemble the clasp:

  • Join the 2 ends of one side of the necklace's inner and outer chains to the 2-hole side of the 3-Hole Filigree Y-Connector.
  • Attach a 9-link chain section to the other end of the 3-Hole Filigree Y-Connector. Open the end of the link and insert one of the ends of the Swirl Clasp Set. (You can do this by opening and closing the jump ring and the small loop end of the swirl clasp, or by opening and closing the chain links.)
  • Repeat on the other side of the necklace.
  • Now is a good time to adjust the chains to make sure the necklace hangs evenly.

8. Add the dangle to the filigree wrapped pendant:

  • Open one end of the 11-link chain section. Insert the link into an opening on the side of the bottom, center filigree petal. Close the link.
  • Open the other end of the 11-link chain section. Insert the link into an opening on the other side of the bottom, center filigree petal. Close the link.
  • Now, open the head pin loop of the unit you made in STEP 3 above, fasten it onto the center link of the 11-link chain section, and close the head pin loop.

Voila! You have finished your beautiful Enchantment Necklace!
