Snow Queen Necklace


About this design:

I love being drenched in shimmer for the holidays. I always purchase a new top and wear something like this to dress it up. I think it lays best from just below the clavicle or wear it long.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need a druzy link, rock crystal points, 22 gauge wire, apatite nuggets, and 4ft crystal chain. You could make earrings or a bracelet out of any left over beads:) I added a rock crystal focal set as an option instead of the graduated strand on the product list.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Take your wire and create a loop on the rock crystal. Twist the wire a couple of times then take your round nose pliers and create a loop. Wrap the rest of the wire around and trim any excess. Do this to all of the rock crystal points, so they each have a loop.
Step 2:
Do Step 1 to all of the rock crystal points, so they each have a loop. I created 6-7 points with loops.
Step 3:
I cut a 1.5" piece of the crystal chain and used it to attach the points to. I attached the points with jump rings to the chain loops.
Step 4:
Then I attached the chain with the points to the druzy link.
Step 5:
Next I added the apatite onto head pins and created a charm loop to hang them from. Create the loop the same as on the crystal points with your round nose pliers. Attach them to the rock crystal points jump rings.
Step 6:
Just attach your chain to the druzy link and your done.

    I like this design idea because it combines several components together that I was having a hard time thinking how to use them. I especially like the addition of the little apatite drops for a burst of icy color.

    This is gorgeous to wear year round! It would be cooling in the summer and warming in the winter with the apatite chips. Love it!

    Your design is striking in many ways. I especially like your use of the crystals and their tie-in with the name for your piece. But the colored beads and druzy link — though they fit the art of your piece they clashed with its theme. I associate the Snow Queen with mirrors and broken mirror slivers [not that I would use mirror slivers directly in any piece intended for wear!] and perhaps the Moon or the blue glow in Laprodite. Your design is haunting and very beautiful.

    Marvelous icy combination with lots of bling. Definitely perfect for a party.
