DIRECTIONS:

NECKLACE:

  1. Make beaded link segments first. Thread black bicones onto an eye pin: a 4mm, a 6mm and a 4mm. Finish with a simple top loop. Leave 1/4" of wire and trim excess. Make nine black links.
  2. Thread a 4mm black bicone, an 8mm black diamond-shaped bicone and a 4mm black bicone onto eye pin. Finish with a simple top loop. Make two links.
  3. Thread a 3mm silver round, a 4mm black bicone and a 3mm silver round onto eye pin. Finish with a simple loop. Make two links.
  4. Make one link by threading a 4mm black bicone, a 6mm black diamond-shaped and a 4mm bicone onto an eye pin and finish with a simple loop.
  5. Cut four lengths each of chain: 6 links, 3 links, 5 links and 9 links. This is the order of chains from the clasp down to the Y.
  6. Create short chain lengths by linking together 6mm jump rings. Begin with a single jump ring, then attach two jump rings to the single jump ring and continue through single jump ring. Open and close jump rings with a side-twist motion so circle retains its shape. Create four 5-jump-ring-lengths of chain (doubles on every other jump ring), then two 7-jump-ringlengths of chain.
  7. Lay out bead links, chains and jump ring chains following the photo as a guide. Additional jump rings will be used to connect the pieces such as the clasp ends and in between segments.
  8. To create the dangles for the Y, thread a 3mm silver round and a black diamond 4mm bicone onto a headpin and finish with a simple top loop. Make five 4mm black diamond-shaped dangles. Thread an 8mm black bicone onto a headpin and finish with a top loop. Make three 8mm black dangles. Make one dangle by threading a 6mm black bicone and a 4mm black bicone onto a headpin and finish with a top loop. Make one dangle by threading two 6mm black bicones onto a headpin and finish with a top loop. Make one dangle by threading an 8mm black diamond-shaped bicone and a 4mm black bicone onto a headpin and finish with a top loop. Follow the photo when attaching dangles.
  9. Complete necklace by attaching the clasp.
