Supplies needed for gold dipped necklaces:
Tape around the middle of the stone. Using the paint pen, color the top part with a thin layer of gold. Let it dry and give it a second coat.
Once the paint is dry remove the tape.
Insert the eye pin through the hole in the bead. Twist the end to form a loop.
Using the jewelry pliers, open the jump ring and attach an 8 inch length of chain to each side. Close each side of the jump rings.
Attach the lobster clasp using the jewelry pliers.
Optional- for extra durability, you can all finish the stone with a thin coat of sealer, such as Mod Podge.
