About this design:

For this statement necklace, I used green & seafoam agate in a variety of sizes to create an ombre pattern.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Gold Chain
  • Green Agate (sizes 6mm-10mm)
  • Seafoam Agate (sizes 6 & 8mm)
  • Gold Crimp Beads
  • Nunn Design Gold Tube (2)
  • Bead Stringing Wire
  • Jump Rings (3mm)

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Cut four pieces of the stringing wire. The strand lengths should be 18", 17.5", 16", and 14.5". String the beads on so the larger 10mm beads are in the center, setting smaller as you go on. On the 17.5" strand, slide a gold tube on each end.
Step 2:
To finish each strand, loop the wire around the chain and secure with a crimp. The chain can be whichever length you choose, depending on how you want the necklace to hang. Finish by sliding all the strands of chain onto a jump ring. repeat on the other side. Finish with a lobster clasp.
