Ethereal Garden Necklace

About this design:

This necklace looks delicate, but I made it with stainless steel chain & wire-making it very durable. It can be made any length you choose by adding bead links of Apatite, Amethyst, and Crystals.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Stainless Steel Chain (1.5')
  • Apatite Chips (1 Strand)
  • Amethyst Mini Tumbled Nugget (1 Strand)
  • Crystal Rondelle 3mm (1 Strand)
  • Pink Recycled Glass Pebble Stick (1 Strand)
  • Stainless Steel 24 gauge Wire
  • Hard Wire Cutters
  • Round Nose Pliers

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Using the wire & the round nose pliers, make bead links with the Apatite, Amethyst, Crystal, and Recycled Glass. I Attached the links directly to the chain, but you can also use a 3mm or 4mm jump ring to attach the links.
  Step 2:
Continue adding the links to the chain until you have your desired length- I wanted a longer necklace, so mine turned out to be 30" long.
