I designed this necklace around this great Gaea ceramic focal piece. I paired it with Czech glass. porcelain, and bead chain. I think the combination of colors really makes the focal piece stand out!

Supplies you’ll need:

  • Bead Chain
  • Brass Cable Chain
  • Beading Wire
  • Crimp Tubes
  • Czech Glass Rondelles
  • Czech Glass Gold Spacers
  • Gaea Ceramic Spring Bundle
  • Porcelain Rondelles
  • Gold Seed Beads
  • Gold Headpin
  • Gold 3mm Jump Rings
  • Gold Chain
  • Lobster Clasp

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step

Step 1

Attach a 4" piece of the stringing wire to each side of the focal. I did this by sliding a crimp onto the wire, looping the wire through the loop on the focal and back up through the crimp, and then clamping the crimp down with pliers. *optional* I wrapped the loops on the focal with lilac waxed linen.

Step

Step 2

On each side, string on a Czech gold spacer, a green turquoise rondelle, and another gold spacer. Bring the two pieces of wire together and slide on a gold spacer, the blue rondelle from the Gaea set, a gold spacer, the polka dot bead, another gold spacer, a green turquoise rondelle, and another spacer. Separate the strands and slide on the beads in the order shown in the picture.

Step

Step 3

Attach each side to a 7" piece if brass chain & bead chain.

Step 4

For the additional necklace, I slid the rose bead from the Gaea bundle onto a headpin with a gold spacer above & below it. Make a loop at the top of the headpin with round nose pliers & trim off the excess. Attach it to two 2" pieces of gold chain, and attach two 4.5" pieces of the bead chain to the gold chain.
