The turquoise agate with flecks of metallic copper and gold are reminiscent of the reflection of a sunset on the ocean. I used warm copper findings to bring out the copper tones of the Czech glass murex shells.

Supplies you’ll need:

  • copper 30mm hoops
  • copper spacers
  • turquoise agate heishis
  • patina twisted rondelles
  • Czech glass murex shells
  • 2 copper head pins

Recommended tools: pliers

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1

Use the pliers to gently bend down the hoop end so you can slide your beads on.

See Tip: Wire Wrap a Charm

Step 2

Create two bead charms using a head pin and the Czech glass shells. Follow the tip below for bead charm help.

Step 3

Slide on 8 daisy spacers, 8 turquoise impression jasper heishis with patina spacers in between. After the 4th heishi is on slide on a patina spacer then the shell charm and another patina spacer. Continue sliding on the rest of the beads as shown.

Step 4

Bend the hoop wire back up so the beads stay on and wear!
