For this design, I used aquamarine nuggets to create a chunky focal piece. I think the light blue of the aquamarine pairs nicely with the Kunzite chips and the Dalmatian jasper adds a fun, unexpected element to the necklace.

Supplies you’ll need:

  • Aquamarine Rough Nuggets
  • Dalmatian Jasper Round 6mm
  • Kunzite Chips
  • 24 or 26 gauge Silver Wire
  • Silver Spacers
  • Beading Wire
  • Silver Crimp Tubes
  • Silver 3mm Jump Rings
  • Silver Lobster Clasp

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step

Step 1

Make a loop at the end of a 17" piece of beading wire and secure with a crimp tube. Slide on the beads in the order shown in the picture.

Step

Step 2

To make the second layer of the cluster focal, slide 7 nuggets onto a piece of wire and twist the ends of the wire around the stringing wire above them (between the nuggets in the first layer). Repeat, using one less nugget each time to create the triangle shape.
