Dreamy Meadow Necklace


About this design:

For this design, I made a bead chain with Green Aventurine, Tanzanite, & Crystal. I then attached it to a new Nunn Design focal. To finish, I added a piece of Rainbow Fluorite & a Prasiolite link- I love how the Green Aventurine & Tanzanite really bring out the colors of the fluorite! This necklace would also look great with an amethyst slice as the focal.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Gold 24 gauge Wire
  • Gold Chain

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Slide a Rainbow Fluorite Barrel onto a 2" piece of wire. With the round nose pliers, make a loop at the bottom and bend it at a 90 degree angle so the loop is flat against the bottom of the barrel.
Step 2:
Make another loop on top- attaching it directly to the prasiolite link. Trim off the excess wire. Attach the top of the link to the Nunn Design Open Circle Pendant with a 3mm jump ring.
Step 3:
Wrap a 3" piece of wire a few times around the top of the pendant (more to the right) until it's tight & secure. Slide on 6 tanzanite rondelles, a green aventurine faceted round 4mm, a Nunn Design cone, another green aventurine bead, and 6 more tanzanite rondelles. Make a loop at the end and attach it directly to a piece of chain. Repeat on the other side.
Step 4:
Make bead links with the Green Aventurine, Tanzanite, & Crystal- attaching them directly to the chain, until you have you're desired length.

    Love this Elaina. Colors are great. You’re right about the Green Aventurine & Tanzanite bringing out the colors of the fluorite. Such a delicate looking necklace.
