Water's Edge Necklace

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.
