Bejeweled Necklace Tutorial

Created by: Cindy Morris


Designer Tips

  • Close the hoop. Lash the rhinestone chain onto the hoop using Artistic Wire, wrapping around the hoop twice between each link of chain.
  • Start and end the chain over the opening of the (now closed) hoop. Trim ends when done.
  • The last link on each end will not lie quite flat, so tie the lark’s head knot over this spot to hide them.
  • Make sure your cord lengths are equal before attaching cord ends and clasp.
