Links are normally added between pieces of chain or other stringing material in a design, but they can also be used as dangles like I did in this necklace.
Let a special someone know you're thinking of them with this necklace. Small heart links add a touch of romance, while cute Swarovski crystal pearls bring color. This stylish design is perfect for any occasion and can even be worn on Valentine's Day
Cut a length of 065 cable chain to the desired length for a necklace. Our length of chain is approximately 15 inches long. You will add an extender later, with jump ring stations for the clasp to attach to.
Slide a Swarovski 4mm round pearl in Lapis onto a sterling silver 1.25-inch 24 gauge ball-end head pin. Attach it to the bottom of a sterling silver square heart link by creating a wrapped loop. Repeat four times for a total of five heart dangles.
Place your chain onto a Chain Stä. When adding jump rings to this chain, it can be tricky to get them to lay right between the links of the chain. The Chain Stä allows the chain to lay right for you to add dangles using jump rings. Add a heart dangle to the center link of your chain using a sterling silver 3.55mm open jump ring. Attach a heart dangle on each side of the center dangle in the same manner, six links over from the center on each side. Attach a heart dangle to each side of the side dangles, six links over from each side.
Attach a 9x3mm lobster claw clasp to one side of the necklace using the included open jump ring.
Cut another length of chain about an inch long and attach it to the end of the necklace using a sterling silver 4.60mm open jump ring. Attach another 4.60mm jump ring to the end of this chain.
Slide a lapis pearl onto a head pin and attach it to the jump ring at the end of your necklace by making a wrapped loop. You can use the 4.60mm jump rings as stations for attaching your clasp, giving you an adjustable necklace length.

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!
