Blarney Stone Necklace
Sparkly crystals aren’t usually my style, but I definitely have a weakness for peridot and sapphire! With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, I decided to have some fun with green and gold. This necklace is a fun blend of Czech Fire Polished Crystals, Chinese Crystals, Gold Plated Stardust Rounds, and a gorgeous Swarovski Cubist Pendant. It measures approximately 20 inches in length, including the clasp. Wear it for St. Patty’s or any time you want a bit of luck! -Dannie, Customer Service

Step 1. Twist open a Jump Ring and thread it through the Cubist Pendant, then through one of the spaces on the 4-Space Connector. Close the Jump Ring.
Step 2. This necklace is composed of sections created by adding a bead to an Eye Pin and forming a simple loop above it. To do this, add the bead and bend the Eye Pin directly above it 90 degrees with Flat Nose Pliers. Trim the Eye Pin with Side Cutters to leave about ¼ inch behind and curl this into a tight loop with Round Nose Pliers. Before closing the loop completely, you’ll attach it to the previous bead.
Step 3. Begin with a Light Sapphire Crystal and attach this to the open space on the Connector to the right of the Pendant. Then add sections in this order: one Chinese Crystal, one Stardust Round, one Chinese Crystal, one Sapphire and Green Crystal, one Small Twist, one Light Sapphire Crystal, one Mint Green Crystal, one Light Sapphire Crystal, one Small Twist, one Diamond Connector, one Chinese Crystal, one Stardust Round, one Chinese Crystal, one Sapphire and Green Crystal, one Mint Green Crystal, one Light Sapphire Crystal, one Chinese Crystal, one Light Sapphire Crystal, and one half of the Toggle Clasp.
Step 4. Repeat Step 3 on the other side of the necklace, beginning to the left of the Cubist Pendant this time. Enjoy!
