Capri Sands Necklace

About this design:

For this design, I wanted to use this new recycled glass pendant set- I love the nugget shapes of the beads & how you can easily create a fun focal using some or all of the set. I paired them with sunstone chips and amazonite to create a beachy vibe.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Recycled Glass Pendant Set (1)
  • African Brass Rice (2)
  • Czech Glass Aquamarine Rondelle (1 Strand)
  • Sunstone Chips (1 Strand)
  • Amazonite Faceted Rondelle (.5 Strand)
  • Gold Chain
  • Gold 22 gauge Wire
  • Gold Crimp Tubes
  • Beading Wire

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Slide the beading wire through the longest piece of the pendant set. Bring the two pieces of wire together and slide on 4 Sunstone Chips.
Step 2:
Separate the wire and slide 2 amazonite beads onto each wire. Slide the rest of the beads onto the beading wire in the order shown in the picture. Attach the wire to the chain by sliding the wire through the bottom chain link and securing with a crimp. Make bead links with the Czech glass rondelles and attach throughout the chain.

    This is such a pretty necklace, I love the colors and the way you composed it. I have some similar elements and haven’t used them because I just was stumped. This is so pretty it might inspire me to pull out mine.

    Very nice use of recycled glass nuggets and chips. A beachy vibe that has inspired me to use some of the recycled glass beads I purchased from Lima Beads last year.
