Sunrise Necklace

About this design:

I love these new multi-color wood resin pieces- the color combos are so fun! For this design, I paired the focal with citrine & moonstone for a simple necklace. I love how perfectly the gemstones match the focal, and it's very lightweight, making it super easy to wear!

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Wood Resin Focal
  • Gold Chain
  • Gemstones (see below for the ones I used)
  • Beading Wire
  • Crimp Tubes
  • Crimp Covers
  • Jump Rings (3mm & 6mm)
  • Lobster Clasp

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Begin with two pieces of beading wire- one about 5" and the other little less than 5". Make a loop at each end and secure with a crimp tube & cover. On one strand, slide on the peach moonstone puff coins. When you've almost reached the end, make another loop and secure with a crimp tube & cover. On the other piece of wire, slide on the citrine puff coins, with a gold seed between every three citrine beads. In the center, slide on two seed beads in a row. Attach the focal to the center with a 6mm jump ring (the jump ring will fit over the two seed beads). When you've almost reached the end, make another loop and secure with a crimp tube & cover.
  Step 2:
Use a 3mm jump ring to attach the end of the citrine strand to the bottom link of an 8" piece of chain. Repeat on the other side. Use another jump ring to attach the moonstone strand in the same manner, except you'll be attaching it to the second chain link. Finish with a jump ring & lobster clasp.
