TechniqueChain & Jump Rings
Dagger charms make wonderful drops in any design. They look great stacked with beaded links in this necklace.
Create statement pieces with the Make a Statement collection from TierraCast. This collection is all about standing out and drawing attention to your designs. Tracy used dagger charms from the collection to decorate this lovely necklace. They look wonderful simply attached to chain. You can see more items and inspiration from the Make a Statement collection in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Open the loop of a Vintaj natural brass 1-inch 21 gauge eye pin and attach a TierraCast brass oxide pewter large dagger charm. Close the loop. Slide a Swarovski 6mm briolette bead in Crystal Copper onto the eye pin and make a simple loop at the top of the bead. Repeat six times for a total of seven dangles.
Cut a length of antique brass-plated flat oval cable chain to the length desired for a necklace. Attach one of your dangles to the center of the chain.
Attach your next dangle eight links over on the chain. Repeat twice on this side and then repeat on the other side of the center dangle.
Add a TierraCast brass oxide pewter classic hook to one end of the necklace using a 5mm antique brass-plated open jump ring. Add an 8mm antique brass-plated open jump ring to the other end of the necklace.

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!
