I was inspired by these new shell focals to make a sea-themed necklace- Na-maka-o-Kaha'i is the Hawaiian Goddess of the Sea, so I thought it as a fitting name. I think the charms go great with the pearls, and of course there are tons of other pearl & shell combinations you could use- I think the necklace would also look nice with smaller shell charms sprinkled throughout.

Supplies you’ll need:

  • White Rice Pearls
  • Potato Pearls
  • Crystal Nugget Rondelles
  • Assorted Shell Charms
  • Silver Wire
  • Beading Wire
  • Round Nose Pliers
  • Jump Rings
  • Lobster Clasp
  • Crimp Tubes

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1

On a 17" piece of the beading wire, string on the potato pearls, the crystal nugget rondelles, and the rice pearls. Make a loop at the ends and secure with a crimp tube.

Step 2

To make the charm, I made a loop with round nose pliers at the end of a 2" piece of wire around the shell charm and strung on a blue nugget rondelle, a pink potato pearl, an opal nugget rondelle, and lastly the shell bead. Make another loop at the top and attach to the center of the necklace with a jump ring.
