Poppy Girl Necklace Tutorial

Poppy Girl Necklace Tutorial

As seen in the Rings & Things Summer Supplement 2013. This project uses SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystals.
Created by: Mollie Valente

Designer Tips

    Prepare the Blanks:
  • On the first blank, mark placement and punch 1/16" holes; mark and punch a centered hanging hole. Repeat for second blank, being careful to match the hole placement.
  • Follow the instructions that come with the BIGkick™ to emboss the brass blank.
  • Patina the blanks and use the reliefing block to polish the high points of the embossed pattern.
  • Add the Image:
  • Roughly clip out your desired image from the sheet.
  • Seal the backside of the image with clear packing tape.
  • Measure and cut the image so it is just slightly larger than the "window" opening.
  • Seal the front side of the image with clear packing tape.
  • Cut the tape so there is just 1/16th of an inch overhang; the overhanging tape allows you to adhere the image to the blank (be careful to line up the image with the window opening).
  • Assemble the Pendant:
  • Place a scrap of leather on the steel block to protect the decorative rivet heads.
  • Use traditional riveting methods to rivet the four corners.
  • Add the jump ring to the hanging hole. Add two decorative metal beads to the jump ring then close.
  • Finish with Necklace Chain and Beaded Clasp:
  • String the pendant onto the chain.
  • On the right-hand side create a beaded link with clasp. Attach an eye pin to the first chain link and string on a metal bead, crystal bead, and metal bead; finish with a wire-wrapped loop and clasp.
  • On the left-hand side create a beaded loop. Attach an eye pin to the last chain link and string on a metal bead, crystal bead, and metal bead; finish with a wire-wrapped loop.
