Crystal Rainbow Chakra Necklace Tutorial
Created by: Polly Nobbs-LaRue
Glue all the stones in, and allow to dry. (See technique sheet linked below, between glue and tools.) Be sure the siam (red) stone goes into the 1-loop setting.
Select 6 matching small (approx. 4mm) jump rings from the assortment. Attach the links and siam charm together in order. For best way to open and close loops, see Jump Ring Hint in Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF).
Select a large (8-10mm) jump ring to attach the rainbow pendant to the chain. This jump ring needs to be large enough to allow the pendant to move easily along the chain.
Attach clasp to chain - the clasp only fits over the ball portion, so if the end portion is a bar, snip it off with wire cutters.
One or more parts (or tools) used in this project are no longer available, so we've moved the whole project into the "Misc Jewelry Tutorials with Issues" area while we decide what we want to do about it: find a good sub, re-make this project, or retire the tutorial.
