Halloween is one of my favorite seasons, so I had fun creating this spooky gargoyle necklace.
The legend of La Gargouille is a spooky story of a water-spouting dragon that appeared in the Seine River in France. When the dragon was defeated by Saint Romain, its head and neck was mounted on the town's cathedral. It is said that the creature has been carved onto buildings ever since, to be used as a water drainage, creating what we know as gargoyles today. Make this gargoyle necklace for Halloween and regale everyone with the tale of how gargoyles came to be
Use Loctite adhesive to adhere the TierraCast brass oxide pewter large hammertone ring link to the back of the brass gargoyle with patina finish embellishment. Make sure the adhesive fills the recesses where the link and the back of the gargoyle meet. Allow to dry.
Dangle three 8mm antique brass-plated open jump rings on the hammertone ring. Attach the Swarovski 21mm briolette pendant in Crystal Copper to all three jump rings, using another 8mm jump ring as the connection.
Add two 6mm antique brass-plated open jump rings to the loop that forms where the gargoyle's ear and wing meet. Cut a length of 3mm antique brass double link curb chain approximately 12 inches long. Attach the end to the two jump rings using another 6mm open jump ring. Repeat on the other side of the gargoyle.
Attach a 6mm antique brass-plated closed jump ring to one end of the necklace using a 4.5mm antique brass-plated 21 gauge open jump ring. Attach the 9x5mm antique brass-plated trigger clasp to the other end of the necklace using a 4.5mm jump ring.

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!
