For this design, I wanted to create a simple necklace that would accentuate this beautiful Peach Moonstone focal. I think the light blue of the Chalcedony has a calming effect when paired with the golds & browns, and the champagne CZ adds just enough sparkle.

Supplies you’ll need:

  • Gold Chain
  • Gold Disc Chain
  • Peach Moonstone Teardrop
  • Beading Wire
  • Gold Crimp Tubes
  • Gold Jump Rings
  • Gold Lobster Clasp
  • Brass Rice Beads
  • Chalcedony Rounds 5-6mm
  • Gold 22 or 24 Gauge Wire
  • Champagne CZ Faceted 2mm Rounds

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1

With the wire, make a bead link with the moonstone drop.

Step 2

Attach a 2.5-3" piece of beading wire to each side of the link & secure with a crimp tube. Slide on 25 Champagne CZ rounds. Make a loop at the end & secure with a crimp tube. With a jump ring, attach a 2" piece of disc chain to each side of the link. Attach the ends of the CZ strand and the chain together with a jump ring.

Step 3

With the wire, make bead links with the brass rice beads & the Chalcedony rounds. Attach to the gold chain. Finish with a lobster clasp & jump ring at the ends.
