The ribbon really adds magical detail to this piece, which is filled with beautiful charms and an amazing pendant from Anna Bronze.
You can easily add ribbon to your jewelry projects for extra texture and color. Cynthia twisted satin ribbon around antique brass chain in this necklace for a whimsical touch that draws the eye. Floral charms and a key pendant from Anna Bronze bring amazing detail to the piece, too. You can see more ideas for using ribbons in your jewelry designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Cut a length of antique gold 1/4 inch satin ribbon approximately 22 1/2 inches long. Slide two Anna Bronze antique brass 13mm floral bead caps onto one side, with the caps facing each other so they look like a hollow bead. Slide two more bead caps on the other side of the ribbon. Add a JBB 2.5mm antique brass fancy crimp end cap with loop to each end of the ribbon and crimp in place.
Cut a length of antique brass-plated split ring cable chain to the same length as the ribbon. Twist the ribbon and the chain around each other. Attach one end of the ribbon and the chain to half of the Anna Bronze antique brass freeform toggle clasp using a 5.5mm antique brass-plated 21 gauge open jump ring. Repeat for the other end of chain and ribbon.
Attach the Anna Bronze antique brass large floral key pendant to the center of the necklace using an antique brass 10mm 14 gauge round open jump ring, making sure that it is between each set of two bead caps.
Attach three Anna Bronze antique brass curved floral charms to the chain on one side of the necklace in a cluster, using a 5.5mm jump ring for each. Attach a floral charm and an Anna Bronze antique brass double-sided leaf charm to the chain on the other side of the necklace using a jump ring for each.
