Nosy Posy

by: Jennifer Tough

Sorry, can't get that name out of my head now. I went to look up the components I used - discovered the links were named Nosy Posy - it's now stuck ;-)

Another instant gratification project this week - gotta love those!  This project uses 5 nosy posy links. Arrange them in a pleasing pattern, then attach them all together using small jump rings.

I made up the necklace two ways originally - the first version did not have any beads wired on to the nosy posy links. I used jump rings to attach two lengths of chain, and finished off with a a lobster claw clasp. Simple and elegant - but I felt it needed something extra.

The final version uses artistic wire in copper (22ga) to wire three red tiger eye beads per side. Before you close up the final loop on the last bead, remember to thread your chain through before wrapping! If you forget, you can always use a jump ring.
