Seaside Hideaway Necklace

About this design:

I always find myself drawn to these beachy color combos, no matter what time of year it is! I love how the larimar, fancy jasper, pink opal, and freshwater pearl look together, and the charms & tassel add another element of interest.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

Silver 24 gauge wire, silver headpins, a variety of gemstones, pearls, and Czech glass (see below for the ones I used), 1 thread tassel & jump ring, 1 round 10mm silver link, 1 gold leaf charm

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Use the silver 24 gauge wire to make bead links with the larimar rounds, fancy jasper rondelles, pink opal rondelles, green kyanite chips, rock crystal energy tubes, and the freshwater pearls. Connect each link directly to one another. Continue making bead links until your bead chain is about 26" long.
Step 2:
Using the 24 gauge wire, make bead links with the pearls, green kyanite, pink opal, & larimar. Repeat this 2 times. Attach the top of the links directly to the silver 10mm round link. Make bead charms using the headpins, a Czech glass gold spacer, larimar, & pink opal & attach to the bottom of the bead links. Attach the gold leaf charm to the bottom of one of the links.

    Beautiful Elaina. Colors are wonderful and love the way the Kyanite chip and the silver sequin drop look like a mushroom. Fun, organic feel.

    Wow Elaina! This necklace is exquisite and awesome. The colors just grab me because no matter what part of the necklace I’m looking at, it just grabs me in a way that is just so sweet, and as Pam said, so calming.

    Beautiful necklace Elaina. The soft colors are lovely. I like the randomness of the design, although upon closer inspection, it’s not as random as it looks. The tassel in the back is unique. There is a peacefulness about the whole piece.
