Vintage Inspired Jet Crystal Necklace

Tammy Powley
The inspiration for this design started with the gorgeous jet crystal beads, which were often a staple of the Victorian woman's jewelry box. However, as a modern woman, I like to have jewelry that is multi-functional, so I designed this necklace that can be worn three different ways: with the toggle clasp in the back; with the toggle clasp on the side; or with the goddess pendant in the center (pictured).

You will need the following tools and supplies:

*80 - 6mm Fire-polished jet crystal beads with twilight finish
*10 - 6mm TierraCast brass oxide pewter spacer beads
*1 Antique brass toggle clasp
*1 Antique brass goddess stamped charm
**1 - 15mm Square raku lampwork bead
**1 - 12mm Round raku lampwork bead
2 - 2x2mm Copper crimp beads
30 inches .019 Champagne colored beading wire (Soft-Flex was used.)
4 inches of 21-gauge Copper wire
1 Bead Stopper
Crimping pliers
Wire cutters
Chain-nosed pliers
Round-nosed pliers
Nylon-nosed pliers
