This simple necklace is convertible. It can be worn long or short to suit every neckline. Just adjust the way it’s clasped for a whole new look every time you put it on. Our brand-new Vintaj Natural Brass Co. Flying Arrow charms add the perfect accent for a layered, boho-chic necklace with plenty of possibilities.
Dragonflies and Dreams Two-Way Necklace Directions:
Cut lengths of chain into 2” segments. Thread an aurora borealis faceted bead onto an eyepin, trim excess wire, and make a look at the other end. Connect the 2” segments of chain with the beaded eyepins until you have a length of 40”.
Fold chain in half to find the center, and attach the toggle piece of the clasp with a jump ring at the center link of the chain.
Attach the ring piece of the clasp with a jump ring to the two ends of your chain.
Apply patina to certain areas of the charms to accentuate, and immediately wipe away excess with a cloth or paper towel.
Tip: Less is more. For a slightly distressed look, use as little patina as possible and wipe away to reveal some of the metal underneath.
Once patina is dry, attach each charm with a jump ring to the ring piece of your clasp. For the dragonfly, add an inch of chain above the charm so that it doesn’t crowd the other pieces.
Leave unclasped for a long necklace or double up the chain and use the toggle clasp for a shorter look.
