It's Alive Necklace Tutorial
Created by: Polly Nobbs-LaRue
Put the "stitches" (XIXIX) on a silver plated eye pin, trim excess and make a loop.
Create each bolt by adding a tiny tube bead and a hexagon drum bead to a silver plated eye pin. Trim excess and make a loop.
Attach these 3 eye pins together.
Using a gunmetal eye pin, add a faceted cube bead, the Frankenstein bead, and another faceted cube bead. Trim excess and make a loop.
Use head pins to make 2 small crystal dangles. Add the lightning bolt and crystal dangles to a jump ring, and hang this from the bottom of Frankenstein bead's loop.
Assemble all remaining components together. Use a jump ring to attach the bolt and chain to the top of the lampwork bead's loop. The links on this cable chain are un-soldered, so you can open and close them like jump rings (rather than cutting the chain links).
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.
