I am in love the green turquoise hues and the unique shape of the Brazil Amazonite Faceted Diamonds. I paired them with coconut and African Trade beads for a tropical look. I think the diamonds create a beautiful fringe which lays nicely on my décolletage.

Supplies you’ll need:

  • Brazil Amazonite Faceted Diamonds
  • Stringing Cord
  • 5 or 6 mm Jump Rings
  • Crimp Tubes
  • Coconut Beads
  • African Trade Beads/ Magnesite Faceted Round 4mm
  • 11/0 Seed Beads
  • WildFire .006" Thread or Soft Flex Beading Wire .014"
  • One 4mm jump ring
  • 1 clasp
  • Crimping Pliers (recommended)

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step

Step 1

Measure the cord around your neck to see where you would like this necklace to lay. Add a few inches extra onto that measurement to allow room for cord ends/finishing touches. Start stringing on the beads in the order shown.

Step

Step 2

Keep stringing beads on until you have reached your desired length,be sure to leave some room for your crimp tubes and clasp.

Step

Step 3

Feed the cord up through the crimp tube and through the jump ring. I do this twice for extra security. Use crimp pliers to crimp the tube. Place the crimp cover on top of the tube for a nice clean look.

Step

Step 4

Use a small jump ring to attach your clasp. Now it's ready to wear!
