Deserted Beach Necklace

About this design:

For this design, I made a long layered necklace inspired by summer days at the beach. I used wood resin, shells, Czech glass, and gemstones to add a variety of textures and shapes.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Beading Wire
  • Nassa Shell Charms
  • Wood Resin Beads
  • Enamel Cowrie Shells
  • Gold Chain
  • Crimp Tubes
  • Jump Rings
  • Lobster Clasps
  • Czech Glass Gold Spacers
  • Various Gemstones

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
For the long necklace, cut a 35" piece of beading wire. Make a loop at one end and secure with a crimp tube. Slide the beads on in the order shown in the picture. At the end, make another loop and secure with a crimp tube.
Step 2:
For the shell necklace, cut a 11.5" piece of beading wire. Make a loop at one end and secure with a crimp tube. Slide the beads on in the order shown in the picture. At the end, make another loop and secure with a crimp tube. With a jump ring, attach a small piece of the bead chain to each side of the necklace. Cut two 3" pieces of the gold chain and attach to each piece of bead chain.
  Step 3:
With a jump ring, attach a 9" piece of chain to the beading wire right after the grouping of potato pearls.
Step 4:
Slide a 2" piece of wire through the opening on the top of the shell-so you'll be working with each half of the wire with the shell in the middle. Twist the two pieces together and create a loop with the round nose pliers. Do the same thing with 2 more cowrie shells, 6 nassa shells, and 2 gold shell charms. Attach them to the chain with jump rings.
