Gemstone & Acetate Pendant Necklace

About this design:

To make a fun & unique focal, I simply used super glue to attach a gemstone to an acetate coin. For these necklaces, I used peach moonstone & rock crystal along with pieces of turquoise acetate.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

Gemstones, acetate coins, super glue, chain, 24 gauge wire, jump rings, lobster clasps.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Slide a piece of wire through the holes in the gemstone pendant. Use round nose pliers to make loops on each end. Place some super glue onto the acetate coin & press the gemstone onto the coin.
Step 2:
Once dried, use jump rings to attach the focal to your desired length of chain.
