Layered Gold Crescent Necklaces with Feather and Dagger Dangles

TechniqueChain & Jump Rings
Approximate Size24-30 Inches
Dagger beads look like feathers to me, so I paired them with feather charms in this necklace set. These necklaces can be worn together or separately.
Turquoise and gold make a beautiful match in these layered necklaces. Cynthia used crescent pendants to create dangling style with feather charms, Swarovski crystal pearls, and CzechMates dagger beads. The result is an exotic, bohemian look that's sure to stand out.

Slide a Swarovski 6mm round pearl in Jade onto a gold-filled 2-inch head pin, followed by a TierraCast antique gold Jasmine bead cap. Attach it to the second loop from the end of the satin Hamilton gold-plated pewter small elegant crescent pendant by make a wrapped loop at the top of the beads. Repeat this step on the fifth loop over, then the sixth loop over from that, then the fifth loop over from that.
Attach a 32x7mm satin Hamilton gold-plated brass feather pendant to the center loop of the crescent using a gold-filled 14K 4.05mm open jump ring. Attach a feather charm to the loop between the pair of pearl dangles on either side of the center charm using a 4.05mm jump ring for each.
Cut a length of 4mm satin Hamilton gold-plated brass elegant double link curb chain approximately nine inches long. Attach it to the top loop of the crescent pendant using a TierraCast gold-plated brass medium oval open jump ring. Repeat for the other loop at the top of the crescent pendant.

Repeat nine times for a total of ten dangles.
Attach one of the dangles to the loop on the outside edge of a crescent pendant using a gold-filled 14K 4.05mm open jump ring. Repeat for every other loop on the crescent pendant.
