Rocky Mountain Trails Necklace

About this design:

I have been noticing necklaces at the stores have to toggle clasp just above the pendant, so i thought I would try it. I really like how this Orbicular gemstone pendant looks against the gold finish of the chain and beads.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need one pendant focal, 3 Nunn Design horizontal tube beads, wire, 2 ft of chain, 20 gauge wire, toggle bar and ring. The Nunn components also come in other metal finishes if you would like to try silver or copper. I added a few other pendant options in the product list below.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Just cut a 4" piece of wire and feed it through the pendant hole. Slide the tubes onto both wire ends and create a wire-wrapped loop at the top. Add your ring to the loop and toggle bar to your chain.

    Love the focus on this beautiful stone. Two advantages to using a toggle upfront that I have noticed. One…it becomes a nice small detail in the design. Two…it makes it much easier for some ladies to close the necklace securely.

    Hi B Krotec! I used 20 gauge wire and I added it to the product list. Sorry I missed adding it to the list;) Would you guys be interested if I added a silver option? Hopefully the pendant I used will be restocked soon!

    Thank you for the quick answer! I purchased the pendant you used and will be using antique copper chain and beads.
