This necklace was in the August/Sept 2011 issue of Step-by-Step wire. Unfortunately it was poorly engineered—it looked great flat but when lifted the pearls fell every which way. I re-engineered both the connector on the pearls as well as the connection between the pearls and the necklace and now it looks as good on as off.
I started with straight 18 gauge wire and made both the jump rings and the chain. I then used purchased headpins to create the faux pearl drops.The clasp is homemade and matches the wire used for the chain. The finished necklace is about 18″ long and has a 3″ extender finished with a single pearl.
