Techniques Used

  • Basic Linking technique (PDF) if using
    1" eye pins & headpins, or making a
    wire-wrapped loop if using 24g wire & headpins

Tools Needed

Step By Step Instructions

Earrings:

  1. Assemble 2 of these components:
    On a 1" headpin, place an amethyst bead and a blossom bead cap, and then make a simple loop.(If using 1.5" headpins, make a wire wrap at the end instead.)
  2. Open the loop on one ear wire and fasten one amethyst/blossom assemblage. Repeat with the second ear wire and assemblage.

Necklace:

  1. Assemble 5 of these components:
    On a 1" eye pin, place blossom bead cap, an amethyst bead, and a blossom bead cap, making sure both bead caps are cupping the bead. Make a simple loop at the other end of the eye pin. (If using Artistic Wire, make a wire wrap at each end instead.)
  2. Assemble 4 of these components:
    Count out 6 links of chain.
  3. Assembly -- Note: with the Vintaj chain, you won't need jump rings. It is even easier if you use 2 chain nose pliers, one in each hand, to open and close the loops of the chain, as it is fairly stiff.
    • Take one end of a blossom/amethyst/blossom segment and attach it to the end of one 6-link chain.
    • At the other end of the 6-link chain, attach a second blossom/amethyst/blossom segment.
    • On the other end of the second segment, attach the second 6-link chain.
    • Repeat these steps, connecting the remaining components from Steps 1 & 2. You should have one long strand of amethyst segment, chain, amethyst segment, chain, amethyst segment, chain, amethyst segment, chain, amethyst segment afterward.
    • Connect the two amethyst segments at the end with the remaining chain.
    • In the middle of the remaining chain, open the two center links and add the hook and eye clasp.
