Steampunk-esque Necklace Tutorial

I very badly wanted to make this steampunk-esque necklace. I love clock pieces and metallic colors, so this was the perfect project for me. It turned out to be so amazingly easy that I thought I'd put together some quick instructions for you.

Here's what I used to make this neckalce-
- Pliers and snippers
- Chain
- E-6000 adhesive
- Filigree pieces
- Jump rings
- A clasp
- A center for the filigree piece

First, I used E-6000 to attach the rose to the cog, then the cog to the filigree.

Then, I laid out about 12" of cogs (with the filigree piece), since I was shooting for a 24" necklace. Adjust for the length you'd like your necklace to be.

Open up a jump ring.

Loop the jump ring through the detail in the cogs. Over. And over. And over.

Eventually, you'll have a strand of cogs all linked together. Measure it to be sure you're getting the length you want.

Once you've measured, attach chain at either end with a jump ring, and a clasp in the middle. 

Voila! All done!
