Mermaid Cove Necklace Set

About this design:

For this necklace, I made the Mermaid bead into a focal by creating a frame using wire with Czech Glass rounds & spacers. I love this white/gold/rose color combination & how perfectly it goes with the crystal chain.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Crystal Bead Chain
  • Gold Chain
  • Czech Glass Mermaid Beads
  • Czech Glass Rounds & Spacers
  • Gold 22 or 24 Gauge Wire
  • Gold 8/0 Seed Beads

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Make an oval with the wire.
Step 2:
With another piece of wire, make a bead link by sliding on 2 gold seed beads, a mermaid bead, and two more seed beads.
Step 3:
Slide the beads onto the wire oval (with the bead link in the center) in the order shown in the picture. Make a loop at the top with the round nose pliers.
Step 4:
With jump rings, connect about 3" of Clear & Champagne Crystal Chain to each side of the pendant. Connect your desired length of plain gold chain to the crystal chain. Attach a 1" piece of Champagne Crystal Chain to the pendant. Attach two pieces of gold chain from the top of this piece to the top of the double strands of chain.
Step 5:
For the bracelet, make a loop on one end of the beading wire and secure with a crimp tube. Slide on the beads in the order shown in the picture. Finish by looping the beading wire through a lobster clasp & secure with a crimp.
