If you'd like the leaf chain to have a fuller appearance in your designs, try looping it like I did just before the pendant in this necklace design. It doubles the leaf volume.
Canaries are bright yellow birds full of cheerful beauty, just like this necklace. Bird and wing pendants from Gardanne Beads create perfect canary style, while Swarovski crystal beads from an Artbeads Designer Blend provide a sparkling backdrop. You can find more inspiration for using Gardanne Beads components in your designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Attach two 2 1/4-inch lengths of satin Hamilton gold-plated leaf chain to the Gardanne Beads lime enameled brass wing pendant using a 14K/20 gold-filled 6mm 20.5 gauge open round jump ring. Attach the other ends of the chain to the eye of a 2-inch satin Hamilton gold-plated 20 gauge eye pin.
Repeat this pattern two times, then add three seed beads and five Verdant Sunshine beads to the strand. Slide on your bird focal and make a mirror image of the bead pattern on the other side of the focal.
Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
