If desired, rivet select pieces together for added dimension. Create the necklace by linking a variety of beads, jump rings, ring, chain and a clasp. Attach each side of the necklace to the centerpiece. For added interest, position the clasp along the side of the necklace. If desired, Vintaj Glaze can be used as a sealer for natural metals to prevent oxidation. It is fast-drying, durable and permanent with a satin finish.
