Cobalt Pearl Necklace

This delicate pearl necklace reminds me of icicles hanging from the sides of the roof. 

Materials: freshwater pearls, headpins, eye pins, chain, clasp, wire cutters, round nose pliers, and bent nose pliers. 
Lay your design out on the table. I had 6 pearls for the longest dangling piece. 
Make a 90 degree angle with the head pin and bent nose pliers. 
Make a loop with the round nose pliers. 
Repeat with an eye pin. Before you close it, slip the headpin on, and then close it. 
Repeat until there are 6 beads. Attach it to the center link of your chain. I cut my chain to the length of a choker. 
Repeat with the rest of the pearls. I used one fewer pearl for each dangle to make the triangle shape. 
Attach your clasp the ends of the chain. 
Wear this beautiful necklace to holiday parties, or a night out. 
It's certainly a statement making piece, but delicate at the same time.  

Enjoy!
Xoxo, Alyssa
