About this design:

Make this necklace any length you choose by adding bead links & Nunn Design assorted silver beads.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • 1 strand of Sunstone Chips
  • 1 strand 3x5mm Czech Glass rondelles
  • 1 Nunn Design antique silver tube
  • 2 Nunn Design antique silver rondelles
  • 1.5' of silver chain

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Make bead links with the Czech Glass beads, the sunstone chips, and the Nunn Design Pieces (the links can be as long or short as you'd like). the amount of links you make depends on how long you'd like your necklace to be-my finished necklace was 32" long.
Step 2:
You can attach the links to the chain with jump rings, however I just attached the bead links directly to the chain as I was making them.

    The dainty chain creates the illusion of the beads floating. I love necklaces that can be doubled around the neck. Nice work!

    The organic silver tubes and rondelles are an interesting pair with endless design possibilities. I like the contrasting colors of the glass bead and chips. Love the long length,too.

    Elaina – Your design is so pretty and light. The sunstone chips really look good with the blue rondelles. And the pops of silver are so nice.
