InspirationFX: Emerald City




Emerald City

by: Malliga Nathan 

I can imagine what night life must be like deep within the Emerald city. This necklace is like one of the many things I could imagine. The rich greens sparkle amidst the dark metals, much like City lights gleaming through the darkness of the night. I love this piece because it is rich in colour yet delicate in design.

Helpful hints:
The centres of these earring pieces are a tight fit. It is best to attach the 4mm bicone on a head pin directly. There won't be enough room if you use a jumpring.

For the chain, cut 4 pieces of 7 links each.
Cut 2 long pieces approximately 6 inches each.
Connect the chain and chandelier earring pieces using the jumprings. The shorter pieces of chain placed in between the chandelier pieces and the longer lengths of chain on either side.
Attach the lobster claw to one end of the necklace and the extender chain to the other end.

I love using extender chains in most of my jewellery, it gives me the chance to adjust the length to compliment a few different necklines.
