About this design:

I was really excited to design something with these new walnut wood resin stick focals- I love the colors & how light-weight they are! For this design, I used African brass & bead chain to create this long-length, (budget friendly!) beach inspired necklace.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Walnut Wood Resin Stick Focals (2)
  • African Brass Saucer (1)
  • African Brass Round (1)
  • Gold 10mm Jump Rings
  • Gold 3mm Jump Rings
  • Hemp Twine
  • Brass Chain (18")
  • Brass Bead Chain (two 3.5" pieces)
  • Super Glue (optional)

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Slide a jump ring onto each wood resin stick. Tie a double knot around the two jump rings with a 10" piece of hemp.
Step 2:
Slide 5 jump rings onto the hemp (this is just for decoration). Next, slide on the African Brass saucer, 5 jump rings, and then the brass bead. Tie a few knots at the top, and then knot the hemp around a jump ring. You can secure this knot with a drop of glue if you'd like.
Step 3:
Attach two 3.5" of bead chain to the jump ring with the 3mm jump rings.
Step 4:
Lastly, attach an 18" piece of brass chain to the bead chain using the 3mm jump rings. I made the length to fit over my head with no clasp, but if you'd like, you can attach a lobster clasp & jump ring to the ends.

    Wonderful necklace Elaina. The sage crystal bead chain really looks great with the resin sticks and the brass saucer.

    I love this design, Elaina!
    I have been trying to find the African Brass Saucer Bead used in this necklace, but when I “search” those exact words, another ‘Saucer’ design bead, pretty plain, comes up!? I’ve looked and looked and can’t find it!? Can you post the exact link to the Saucer Bead that you used, please?? I would greatly appreciate it! I await your reply, and the link! (First pic is the Saucer you used, second pic is the Search results.)
    Thanks!
