For this design, I paired Aquamarine with Fossil Jasper to create this long, layered necklace. I love using this brown & blue color combo in designs- something about it is very calming & peaceful.

Supplies you’ll need:

  • African Brass Rice
  • Indonesian Fossil Jasper Energy Tube
  • Aquamarine Energy Tube
  • Coconut Shell Rondelles
  • 11/0 Seed Beads
  • Thread Tassel
  • Microsuede Flat Cord
  • Beading Wire
  • Gold 24 Gauge Wire
  • Czech Glass Lotus Coin
  • Gold Crimp Tubes/Covers
  • Gold Jump Rings
  • Gold Chain

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1

Begin by making a bead link with the wire and the lotus coin. Attach the tassel to the bottom of the link.

See Tip: Wire Wrap a Bead Link

Step 2

Slide a piece of beading wire (about 18" long) through the top of the link. Slide 14 seed beads onto each side of the wire.

Step 3

Bring the pieces of wire together and slide on an African Rice bead.

Step 4

Slide 3 seed beads onto each wire. Continue sliding on beads in the order shown in the picture. *Note* the larger seed beads I used that are separating the Fossil jasper energy tubes are the seed beads that you'll get with the energy tube strand* Once you've finished stringing on the beads, make a loop at the end of the wire & secure with a crimp tube & cover.

Step 5

Next, you'll need a piece of microsuede cord about 23" long.
Slide the end of the microsuede through the loop about 1/4". Wrap wire around the two pieces of microsuede to secure.

Step 6

For the second necklace, I made bead links with the Aquamarine energy tubes, coconut rondelles, and African brass rice until I reached a length of 18".

Step 7

Lastly, use jump rings to connect the ends of the bead chain to an 8.5" piece of gold chain. I made both necklaces long enough to fit overhead, so no clasp is needed.
