This necklace is a great way to show off a collection of my favorite summer charms. I added a layer of mother of pearl chain for even more beachy vibes.

Supplies you’ll need:

  • 2' stainless steel paperclip chain
  • 15 jump 4mm rings
  • freshwater pearl star
  • paradise palm tree coin
  • spotted shell charm
  • capiz shell coin
  • biwa freeform drop
  • greek shell
  • flower black lip shell charm
  • pave leaf
  • mother of pearl mosaic round
  • bird charm
  • beaded oint drop charm
  • gold eye pins -oval jump rings
  • mother of pearl heishi
  • toggle clasps

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1

Cut the chain to your desied length. The finished paperclip chain necklace is 18" and the mother of pearl necklace is 16", check to see if those lengths suit you.

Step 2

Use the jump rings to attach the charms. For the star & mosaic round beads: slide a bead onto the head pin and create a loop at the top with your pliers. Wrap the extra wire around the base of the loop once and trim. Use the jump rings to attach your toggle clasps to both necklaces.

Step 3

To create your own bead chain with the mother of pearl heishi, slide a bead onto an eye pin and create a loop on the other end with your pliers. You could use a looper tool for this too. Connect the beads links with the oval jump rings. Make as many as you need for the length you want. Follow the tip below if needed.
