Winter Magic Necklace

About this design:

This necklace features a mix of colorful stainless steel seed bead chains, separated by pearl and aquamarine links. You can make this any length, however I think it looks best as a longer necklace.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Amethyst Coin Link (1)
  • Aquamarine link (2)
  • Wire
  • Stainless Steel Seed Bead Chain
  • White Potato Pearls
  • Jump Rings
  • Spike Focal

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Using round nose pliers, make a loop on one end of a 2" piece of wire. Slide the spike focal onto the wire.
Step 2:
Don't slide the focal all the way to the loop you just made- bend the wire a bit so the loop is at the top of the focal, and then repeat on the other side.
Step 3:
Bring the two loops together and connect them with a jump ring.
Step 4:
Attach the amethyst coin link to the same jump ring connecting the loops.
Step 5:
Cut 2" pieces (1 of each color- so 3 strands total) of the chain. Connect them together with a jump ring and attach the jump ring to the top of the amethyst coin link.
Step 6:
Connect the other ends of the chain together with a jump ring. Make a bead link with the pearls and attach directly to the jump ring connecting the chains together.
Step 7:
Repeat on the other side. Continue until you have your desired length- adding in the aquamarine lengths and varying lengths of the pearl links.

    Love your design! Great tip on using wire to make bail. I was trying to figure out how to do something like that, now I know how do use it. You make it look so easy.
