Gunmetal chain is the star of this jewelry set Cynthia created a chain tassel as the focal of her necklace and dangled chain for her earrings, as well. Bell flower accents here and there add just a touch of color. Cynthia made this set during a Facebook Live design challenge video. You can watch her make these pieces and other designs here.
Slide a Czech glass 10mm jet round onto a 1.5-inch gunmetal-plated 22 gauge eye pin, followed by a Czech glass 12x6mm burnt orange silk matte with dark bronze wash wide bell flower bead and a TOHO 6/0 Demi Round bead in matte-color dark olive. Make a wrapped loop at the top of the beads.
Open the eye of your eye pin dangle and attach a 1 ½-inch length of gunmetal-plated 3+1 small round and oval link chain. Close the eye.
Add a Czech glass 4mm ColorTrends: Saturated Metallic Hazelnut fire-polished bead to a 2-inch gunmetal-plated 22 gauge head pin, followed by a Demi Round and another fire-polished bead. Attach this dangle to the end of your chain by making a wrapped loop.
Open the loop of a gunmetal-plated earwire with ball and coil and attach it to the top of your earring. Close the loop.
Repeat these steps to make the other earring.,
Cut a length of chain approximately 1 ½-inches long. Add it to the loop of an eye pin. Repeat twice for a total of three chain dangles.
Add a fire-polished bead, a TOHO Demi Round, and a fire-polished bead to a head pin. Attach it to one of your chain dangles by making a wrapped loop. Repeat for the second chain dangle. For the last chain dangle, add a fire-polished bead and a TOHO Demi Round to the head pin and attach with a wrapped loop.
Slide a TierraCast black finish pewter tall radiant cone to the eye pin, over your chain dangles. Then, add a bell flower bead to the eye pin, followed by a TOHO Demi Round. Make a wrapped loop at the top of the beads.
Attach your focal to a 17 ½-inch length of chain using a TierraCast medium oval black finish pewter open jump ring. Attach each half of the TierraCast black finish pewter heirloom clasp set to each end of your necklace using a jump ring for each.
