Ooooooh, Sparkly.


Here is a tutorial for a quick, easy and pretty pendant.

I have been on a look out for a pretty pendant on a long necklace
for some time.

I while looking for the supplies for my wire cabochon TUTORIAL,
I came across this pretty filigree circle.
A light bulb went off.

Turns out I had everything on hand to make my own necklace.
Isn't sad when you don't realize or remember all the craft supplies you have?

20 inch silver chain
3 silver jump rings
faux pearls
bead spacer
twist clasp



Add to that some heavy duty glue (I used E600),
and a needle nose and round nose plier
and I was in business.


Glue your bead spacer to the middle of your filigree circle.
Then glue your faux pearl in the middle.


Once it dries, add one jump ring.
Use both pliers to open and then close the jump ring.
Below is a picture before I closed it.
Set it aside.

Then take our chain, clasp and 2 other jump rings.
you will be attaching a jump ring to the chain and also the clasp.
Just twist open the jump ring and thread both through.


Before you repeat on the other side, be sure to slip the pendant onto the chain.


And you are done! 
Told you it would be quick and easy.
the whole project took about 5 minutes minutes, minus the dry time wait.

It looks really cute with both dresses and pants and I love it.
I couldn't get the best picture of how sparkly it is.
I even received several comments on my nice new bling.
Yeah, that's how I roll. 
lol


XOXO,
