I've been really looking forward to creating something with these great new African Brass pieces- they add a unique focal element to any design. Lately I've been liking this color combination of oranges & blues, but the brass is a fun compliment to any color combination!

Supplies you’ll need:

  • Assorted African Brass Pieces
  • African Zigzag Barrel Bead
  • Hyacinth & Vanilla African Trade Beads
  • Beading Wire
  • Gold Czech Glass Spacers
  • Brass Disc Chain
  • Brass Wire
  • Turquoise 11/0 Seed Beads
  • Turquoise Spike Focals
  • White Tassels

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1

Begin by making two bead links with the African Brass triple disc.

Step 2

Make 4 bead links with the tiny African Brass discs with a white bead on each end.

Step 3

link a 1.75" piece of wire around one end of the triple disc bead. Slide on the turquoise beads, the orange beads, the gold spacers & the 4 bead links from step 2 in the order shown in the picture & attach the other end to the other triple disc bead.

Step 4

Make 4 bead links with the blue rounds. Attach them directly to the bead links from step 2. Attach a 3" piece of brass disc chain to each end of the triple disc bead.

Step 5

Loop a 4" piece of beading wire through the bottom of two of the bead links.

Step 6

Slide on an orange bead, white bead, brass disc, another white bead, orange bead, brass tie, orange bead, and another white bead. make a small loop at the bottom & secure with a crimp. Attach a white tassel to the loop.

Step 7

Loop a 19" piece of beading wire through the top of the triple disc brass bead & secure with a crimp tube.

Step 8

Slide the beads onto both strands in the order shown in the picture. Make a loop at the end & secure with a crimp. Repeat on the other side of the necklace.

Step 9

Make a link with the large brass coin & attach to the top of the triple disc pieces.
