For this design, I paired Czech glass horse eyes, Apatite, and hemp to create this lightweight, beach-y inspired necklace.

Supplies you’ll need:

  • Natural Hemp Twine
  • Czech Glass Horse Eye Beads
  • Apatite 4mm Faceted Rounds
  • Silver Jump Rings
  • Silver Headpins
  • Beading Wire
  • Silver crimp tubes & covers
  • Super Glue

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step

Step 1

Begin with a long piece of beading wire. String on an apatite round, a horse eye, and another apatite.

Step

Step 2

String on 2 more horse eye beads and curve the wire so it's facing down.

Step

Step 3

Bring the two pieces of wire together and string on an apatite round, a horse eye, and another apatite.

Step

Step 4

String a separate, long piece of beading wire through the top horse eye bead.

Step

Step 5

String a horse eye bead onto each side of the wire.

Step

Step 6

String another separate piece of beading wire through the horse eye's from step 5.

Step

Step 7

Slide a horse eye bead onto each piece of wire that's facing down, and an apatite bead onto the piece of wire that's angled up (see pic).

Step

Step 8

Bring the pieces of wire together and slide on an apatite round.

Step

Step 9

On the wire angled up, slide a horse eye bead and an apatite round onto each side.

Step

Step 10

To finish the ends, slide on 2 more apatite rounds at the bottom of the center focal. Slide on a crimp tube, clamp down to secure, and slide on a crimp cover. Repeat these steps to finish the ends of the other two focals, except use one less apatite bead.

Step

Step 11

Loop the ends of the wire through a soldered jump ring & secure with a crimp tube & cover. Knot 3 long pieces of hemp together through the same jump ring. Secure the knot with a drop of glue. Repeat on the other side of the necklace.

Step

Step 12

Braid the hemp together until you've reached your desired length. Knot the end around a soldered jump ring & attach a lobster clasp. Use headpins to make bead charms with the apatite. Attach the charms with 3mm jump rings throughout the braided hemp.
