Embellished Cork Focal Necklace


About this design:

For this focal necklace, I glued cabochons to a cork coin focal, and sewed gemstones around the edge. The cabochons are attached easily using a small drop of super glue, and the cork is sturdy, yet thin enough to easily sew on your favorite beads!

The products in this design are listed below.


Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Glue the cabochons to the cork coin focal in any pattern you choose. Sew 4mm gemstones around the edge of the focal. See my embellished cork bracelet for a step-by-step on how to sew the beads securely around the cork.
Step 2:
Attach jump rings to the thread on the back of the cork. Attach the chain to the jump rings.
