Sparkling Sugarplum Necklace

About this design:

For this necklace, I used leather cord and a Chrysoprase pendant to create a simple and easy-to-make design. I think the leather cord works great with these beads, and the amethyst & crystal clusters make the chrysoprase focal really stand out!

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Gold Wire
  • Crystal Nugget Rondelles
  • Teardrop Pendant
  • Gold Cord Ends
  • Gold Lobster Clasp
  • Amethyst Nuggets
  • Leather Cord
  • Gold Headpins
  • 4mm Jump Ring
  • Rhinestone Rondelle
  • Brass Nuggets
  • Super Glue

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Fold a 16" piece of leather cord in half. Slide a rhinestone rondelle onto both halves of the leather so a loop is formed at the bottom. Using a jump ring, attach the teardrop pendant to the loop.
Step 2:
On each side of the necklace, slide on a crystal nugget rondelle, a brass nugget bead, and another crystal. Tie a knot to secure them in place.
Step 3:
Using the headpins, make bead charms with the amethyst nuggets & crystal nuggets. Attach to the same jump ring holding the teardrop focal.
Step 4:
Move up the cord about 2", tie a knot, slide on a crystal, a brass nugget, and another crystal. Tie a knot to secure. Move up the cord another 2" and repeat.
Step 5:
To finish, glue in the cord ends & attach a lobster clasp & jump ring.
