How to make transformer necklaceTh Anaconda transformer necklace

Today we will make a very unusual necklace and the interesting part of this piece of jewelry is that it consists of two parts, the chocker and a tie-pendant. You can wear a chocker in a day time and add the beautiful detail for coming out.  

Despite it's visible complexity, it is very easy to make such a necklace. What is important is the accuracy in measurements

We have used the following gems and beads in this necklace:

- big serpentines (6 pc.);
- medium size serpentine (3 pc.);
- labradorite (6 pc.);
- ammonites (2 pc.);
- jewelry stones(16 pc.);
- fire polished beads (1 pc.);
- glass beads (2 шт.);
- czech seed beads № 10 (beige, green, silvery-green, golden yellow);
- bugle beads(peach, bronze, red);
- chunky Chineese seed beads of bronze color;
- natural thin leather for beading foundation;
- metal clasp (1 pc.);
- junp rings (2 pc.);
- bif sewing hooks and eye fasteners (2 pc.)
- tools - paper, scissors, ruler, needles, thread, glue

Once all the materials are gathered we are ready to start the project. Take measuremens from your neck and make a template. The upper part of a necklase will be mesures approximately 22x4.5x2.5 centimeters

The size of a lower part of 15x9 centimeters

Transfer the template on a leather and glue on the big serpentine cabochones on both parts of a foundation

One will be placed on a chocker part, ther other five on the attaching tie

Work with a peyote stitch and make a ftiing for he cabochone on a chocker with a cream colored beads, and the tie ones with a bronze cut beads. Alternatively you can bead a central big cabochone with a crem beads. So far we will be working on a detachable part

Just above the central cabochone, place two ammonites and work with a chinese bronze seed beads

TThe small cabochones are done with silver, cream and green beads
