Free Instructions Flamingo Necklace

A sweet necklace for a Flamingo lover (who doesn't love Flamingos?!). A proud little Flamingo, standing on one leg, with pretty little pink crystals adorning the chain she swings from. This necklace has lovely movement! 

You could change the theme of your necklace by swapping the charm ( browse all charms ), and choose different colours crystals  ( browse Preciosa Crystal beads ) to personalise the design to reflect your character. Or it would make an ideal gift! Handmade jewellery is the best

1 x Flamingo Charm ( MT1BM )

4 x 5mm Preciosa Light Rose Bicone Crystal Beads ( CPB570020-24 )

Instructions:

1. Thread one 4mm rose crystal bead onto a head pin, and trim 8mm above the bead (photo 1)

TIP: Keep your head pin off cuts, you will need one to make a jump ring for your necklace. They are handy to keep for future projects to make into more jump rings, or eye pins!

2. Using chain nosed pliers fold over the top section of the head pin (photo 2)

3. Use round nosed pliers to turn a neat loop to finish one crystal charm ( photo 3 ). Put to one side

5. Using chain nosed pliers, open the loop on your crystal charm you made in the beginning 3 steps, link it onto the fourth link along from your jump ring, close the loop (photo 5)

6. Repeat steps 1-3, but with a 5mm rose crystal, attach it the chain, 4 links along from the crystal charm you added in the step precious

7. Repeat steps 1-3, but with a 4mm rose crystal, attach it the chain, 4 links along from the crystal charm you added in the step precious

8. Continue these two steps, until you have three 4mm rose crystals charms and two 5mm light rose crystal charms on the chain.

9. Repeat on the other side of the chain, with the remaining three 4mm rose crystals, and two 5mm light rose crystal ( photo 6 )

You're finished!
