Blue Magnesite Necklace

About this design:

For this necklace, I strung turquoise magnesite nuggets onto waxed linen & attached to deer tan leather lace. It's simple to make and I think the turquoise & brown go great together!

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Turquoise Magnesite Nugget (1/2 Strand)
  • Deertan Leather Lace (2')
  • Wire 26 Gauge
  • Irish Waxed Linen 3 ply
  • Lobster Clasp

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Begin with about a 7" piece of waxed linen. Slide on 7 magnesite nuggets- tie a double knot in between each nugget.
Step 2:
Make a loop with the leather lace around the waxed linen and wrap a piece of wire around it until secure.
Step 3:
At the end of the leather, make a loop and secure it with wire. Make a loop with another piece of wire through the leather loop- attach a lobster clasp to this loop. Repeat on the other side.
