It's fun to make jewelry with a theme. It could be a place like India, colors of the sunset, or even your backyard.
A dazzling Swarovski sun pendant in a hazy gold hue floats above a tassel, an elephant and warm bicone beads from an Artbeads Designer Blend. With copper findings and rich leather as accents, this necklace paints a beautiful portrait of a Sunset Over India.
Cut a length of 5x4.5mm antique copper-plated flat cable chain approximately 16 inches long. Attach the Swarovski 19mm sun pendant in partly frosted Crystal Golden Shadow to the TierraCast antique copper-plated royal pinch bail and slide it onto the chain. Set aside for now.
String six beads from the Swarovski 5328 3mm Bicone Hot Cocoa Designer Blend onto a piece of 24 gauge Silver Artbeads Designer Wire. Wrap the wire around the bottom of the Nunn Design antique silver-plated pewter large hexagon open frame pendant so that the beads are in the frame. String eight beads from the Blend onto a piece of wire and repeat. Repeat once more with nine beads from the Blend.
Use a sterling silver 6.10mm open jump ring to dangle the TierraCast antique silver Gita charm inside the frame. Open the jump ring, add the charm, and then bring the jump ring around the loop and the top of the frame. Use two 6.10mm jump rings linked together to attach the pendant to the sterling silver curved tube bead with ring. Set aside.
Cut a 20-inch piece of 1.5mm natural red brown round leather. Slide a sterling silver 3x15mm curved tube bead onto the leather. Attach a sterling silver 4.60mm open jump ring to the TierraCast antique silver spiral heart charm and slide the jump ring onto the leather. Add the curved tube bead with ring holding the hexagon pendant. Attach the 21mm matte silver-plated pewter tassel charm to a 4.60mm jump ring and slide the jump ring onto the leather. Add a curved tube bead to the leather.
Attach a JBB 2mm antique copper-plated pewter fancy crimp end cap with loop to one end of the leather and squeeze the cap shut using pliers. Use a 4.5mm antique copper-plated 21 gauge open jump ring to attach half of the TierraCast antique copper-plated spiral toggle clasp to the end cap. Repeat on the other end of the leather.

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
