InstructionsPENDANT INSTRUCTIONS:1. Cut a 12" length of 20 gauge wire. Wrap the middle of the wire around the marker, forming a loop. 2. Bend one wire tail over about 90 degrees and wrap it around the marker. Repeat this with the other tail. 3. Bring both tails up and crisscross them. This completes the formation of the body of the Celtic knot. Keep working with the knot to get it symmetrical. 4. Once you are satisfied with the shape of the knot, snugly wrap one of the tails a few times around the other tail. Trim the excess of the tail you wrapped. 5. Cut a 6" length of 24 gauge wire. Securely wrap this wire several times around one of the four intersections of the curves on the outside edges of the knot. Repeat this step on the other three intersections of those curves. 6. Slide the following onto a head pin: a green bicone, two jump rings, a green bicone, two jump rings and a green bicone. Form a loop to make a beaded drop. Open the loop and attach it around the top center intersection of wires in the knot. 7. Form the remaining tail at the top of the knot into a wrapped loop. Trim any excess tail.NECKLACE INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Slide the following onto an eye pin: a green bicone, two jump rings, a green bicone, two jump rings and a green bicone. Form a loop to make a beaded link. Repeat this step one more time. 2. Find the little jump ring attaching the chain together in the middle and cut that jump ring off. Cut a 2 1/4" length of chain off one end of the chain. Slide the loop on top of the pendant onto the middle of that chain. Attach a loop on one side of each beaded link to each end of that chain. 3. Cut the remaining chain into two equal halves. Attach one each end of each chain to the loops on the other side of the beaded links. 4. Attach the jump ring on a lobster clasp to the other end of one of those chains. 5. Attach a jump ring to the end of the other chain.
