I love these new Czech Glass sun coins- they're perfect for adding a simple focal piece to your designs! For this necklace set, I paired them with African brass, Czech glass rondelles, seed beads, coconut, and gold & bronze organic tubes.

Supplies you’ll need:

  • Czech Glass Sun Coin
  • African Trade Beads in Vanilla
  • Czech Glass Fire Polished Rondelles
  • Coconut Shell Rondelles
  • African Brass Rice
  • Nunn Design Organic Tubes
  • Seed Beads in Gold & Bronze
  • Beading Wire
  • Crimp Tubes
  • Crimp Covers
  • Headpin
  • Jump Rings
  • Lobster Clasps
  • 24 Gauge Wire

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1

For the bracelet, measure a piece of beading wire to be a little longer than needed to fit your wrist. Make a small loop at one end & secure with a crimp tube & cover. Slide the beads onto the wire in the order shown in the picture. Make another loop at the end & secure with a crimp tube & cover. Attach a lobster clasp & jump ring to the loops at the end.

See Tip: Crimping Basics

Step 2

For the necklace, begin by making a bead charm with a headpin & a sun coin. Use seed beads & Czech glass to make two bead links & attach them directly to the sun coin charm.

See Tip: Wire Wrap a Charm

Step 3

Use wire to make bead links (connected directly to one another) with the Czech glass, Nunn Design Tubes, seed beads, & coconut until you've reached your desired length. Finish by attaching a lobster clasp & jump ring to the ends.
