This week I had a lot of fun making this statement necklace- I used a mix of gemstones, Czech glass, and crystals to make the focal pieces, and then I simply attached them together with bead links. I love the mix of shapes (cubes, teardrops, and rondelles) and this color combo- the rose gold teardrops really seem to glow in the sunlight!

Supplies you’ll need:

  • African Turquoise Small Faceted Cube
  • Sunstone Small Faceted Cube
  • Czech Glass Rose Gold Teardrop
  • 3mm Crystal Rondelles (gold & lavender)
  • Peach Moonstone Faceted Round 4.5mm
  • Gold 20 Gauge Wire
  • Gold 28 Gauge Wire
  • Gold Lobster Clasp
  • Gold Jump Rings
  • Gold Chain

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step

Step 1

Make a bead link with a piece of 20 gauge wire & a Czech glass teardrop.

See Tip: Wire Wrap a Bead Link

Step

Step 2

Wrap a piece of 26 or 28 gauge wire (about 5" long) a few times around the wire between the teardrop and the loop of the bead link.

Step

Step 3

Slide 3 lavender crystals, 3 gold crystals, 1 turquoise cube, 3 gold crystals, and 3 more lavender crystals onto the wire.

Step

Step 4

Wrap the end of the wire a few times around the wire between the teardrop and the loop of the bead link.

Step

Step 5

Repeat step 2, but with a longer piece of wire. Slide 1 moonstone faceted round, 4 sunstone cubes, 1 gold crystal, 1 turquoise cube, 1 gold crystal, 4 sunstone cubes, and 1 more moonstone round onto the wire.

Step

Step 6

Repeat step 4.

Step

Step 7

Wrap a small piece of 26 or 28 gauge wire around the two bead links & twist them together a few times. Repeat on the other side.

Step

Step 8

This is what the finished piece should look like.

Step

Step 9

Repeat steps 1-8 seven more times. Connect each piece together with a turquoise cube bead link. Attach each link directly to each teardrop focal.

Step

Step 10

Make 4 bead links with the Czech glass teardrops. Using jump rings, attach two links to each end of the necklace.

Step

Step 11

Attach a 2.5" piece of chain to each end of the necklace. Finish with a jump ring & lobster clasp.
