I absolutely love prehnite gemstones and I wanted to show off how beautiful they are. I was inspired by African and Egyptian jewelry exhibits I explored in Washington D.C. I love the contrast of the rough cut gemstone with the brass African beads. Try making your own version and post it!

Supplies you’ll need:

You will need a strand of prehnite, 10 African brass rice beads, a strand of druzy 6mm rounds, 6 Saki etched discs, and 8-12" of brass cable chain.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1

Lay out your beads how you would like and start stringing them on. I gave myself plenty of extra cord t work with.

Step 2

Knot each end as close to the bead as you can get. I did a double knot.

Step 3

After you have knotted both sides, loop the cord through the chain 2 or 3 times. Wrap the cord tightly around and knot. I added a touch of glue over the knot for extra strength. Do the same on the other side.

Step 4

Finished! Just add your favorite clasp.
