Earring Instructions:

1. Slide a metal round bead onto an eye pin and form a loop to make a bead link. Connect one loop of the bead link to the bottom loop of an ear wire.

2. Slide a metal rondelle spacer, and a turquoise bead onto an eye pin and form a loop to make a turquoise & metal rondelle bead link. Connect the loop on the turquoise bead side of the bead link to the bottom loop of the round metal bead link.

3. Use a 6mm jump ring to connect the jump rings of ten metal disc charms to the bottom loop of the turquoise & metal rondelle bead link.

4. Repeat steps 1-3 for the matching earring.


Turquoise Bracelet Instructions:

1. Cut a 20” length of monofilament.

2. String on the pattern of one metal rondelle spacer, one turquoise bead, etc. to a length of 14 ¼”.

3. Use crimp tubes to connect each end of the monofilament to one half of a metal toggle clasp.


Coin Bracelet Instructions:

2. String on the pattern of one metal round bead, and the jump ring of two metal disc charms, etc. to a length of 3½”. Use crimp tubes to connect each end of monofilament to half a toggle clasp.

3. Cut a 2 ½” length of oval link chain. Use 6mm jump rings to attach each end of the chain to half a toggle clasp.

4. Connect the bars and circles of the toggle clasps together to make a bracelet.


Necklace Instructions:

1. Cut one 14 ½” length of oval link chain, two 6 ½” lengths of twist chain, and two 7 ½” lengths of oval link
chain.

2. Cut or separate one additional link of oval link chain. Open the link and use it as a jump ring to connect the
middle link of the 14 ½” length of chain to the top edge of the large metal accent.

3. Use a 6mm jump ring to connect one end of a 6 ½” length of twist chain to the left edge of the metal accent, two openings down from where the oval chain was connected in step 2. Repeat this step on the right edge of the metal accent.

4. Connect the link on one end of a 7 ½” length of oval link chain to the left edge of the large metal accent, two openings down from the jump ring from step 3. Repeat this step on the right edge of the large metal accent.

5. Join two 6mm jump rings together. Connect one jump ring to the loop on one half of a toggle clasp. Connect the other jump ring to the end of the three chain lengths on the left side of the large metal accent. Repeat this step on the right side of the large metal accent.

6. Use a 6mm jump ring to attach the jump rings of ten metal disc charms to the bottom hole of a flat round metal charm. Repeat this step to make a total of six flat round metal disc charms.

7. Measure out from the first link that connects the 7 ½” oval link chain to the bottom edge of the large metal accent. Use 4mm jump rings to connect flat metal disc charms, from step 6, to the bottom of the chain links that are ½”, 2 ¾”, and 5” from the beginning of the first link. Repeat this step on the right side of the large metal accent.

This is a real statement summer boho piece for festivals and holidays! I have seen a few pieces like this in stores but nothing as nice as this! And none of them had matching earrings either!! I have a sun holiday coming up soon and is say these would be fabulous with a maxi dress!!!

Was looking at a necklace similar to this just the other day and wondering if I could remember it until I arrived home to start it? or did I have the right bits and bobs to do it? could I photograph it to remember it??? Now this pattern which is more exciting and more attractive and has a bracelet - you read my mind! the drama and setting of the necklace make it a spectacular piece of jewellery - can't wait to try it
