Autumn Mist Necklace

About this design:

Labradorite is one of my favorite gemstones, so I was really excited to design with new shapes & sizes of it this week! For this design, I paired it with garnet, light blue agate, and gold & silver accents.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Labradorite Rounds, Rondelles, & Cubes
  • Garnet Rounds
  • Sky Blue Agate Rondelles
  • Gold Round Beads
  • Silver Headpins
  • Gold Chain
  • Microsuede Cord
  • Silver 24 Gauge Wire
  • Green Girl Ring Focal
  • Lobster Clasp
  • Jump Rings

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Use the silver 24 gauge wire to make bead links with the labradorite, garnet, sky blue agate rondelles, and the gold rounds. Connect each link directly to one another. Continue making bead links until your bead chain is 25" long.
Step 2:
Knot a piece of the microsuede around the ring focal. Slide the end of the microsuede through the bottom loop of the bead chain about 1/4". Wrap a piece of wire around the two pieces of microsuede to secure. Repeat on the other side of the necklace.
Step 3:
For the second necklace, I used a 22" piece of gold chain. Make 7 bead charms using the headpins, garnet, & labradorite. Attach directly to the center of the chain. Finish by attaching a jump ring & lobster clasp to the ends.

    The first thing I thought of when I saw this is “The Girl From Ipanema”. Tall and tan and young and lovely. Beautiful necklace.

    Beautiful! I love labradorite but I have a hard time deciding what to use with it. I never would have thought about garnet. So pretty.

    Beautiful color combination that’s unique & attractive. Nice way you connected the focal ring–the suede adds a bit of contrast to the sparkle in the stones.
