New Year's Celebration Lariat Tutorial
Created by: Amy Mickelson
- Czech glass rhinestone chain works great for any jewelry that calls for a bit of bling. You can use the full meter (39.3") for the lariat, if desired. This project uses a 33" piece.
- Use chain-nose pliers to crimp a rhinestone chain end onto each end of the chain.
- Sandwich each coin pearl between two bead caps on a thin ball-end head pin, and finish with a wrapped loop.
- Attach each pearl dangle to the loop on the rhinestone chain end with a small jump ring.
- HINT: For extra security, use two jump rings on each pearl dangle.
- Design Option: Depending on the length of chain, and your wrist size, this can also be worn as a wrapped bracelet.
