These dreamy watercolor agate rondelles are a subtle pastel symphony. At 6x8mm, they're just the right size for so many designs. I added in some beachy, luminous Java glass and coconut so I can wear it on vacation.

Supplies you’ll need:

  • Watercolor Agate Rondelle 6x8mm
  • Seafoam Java Recycled Glass Barrel 7-8x9-12mm
  • Sea Green Java Recycled Glass Leaf Focal 29-34x15-19mm
  • Linhasita Lavender (69) Waxed Polyester Cord PE-2 0.5mm
  • Light Brown Coconut Shell Rondelle 2.5-4.5x8-8.5mm
  • Antique Silver Jump Rings 8mm
  • Wire Protectors
  • Lobster Clasp
  • Crimp Tubes & Covers

Recommended tools: Scissors & Lighter

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step

Step 1

Cut 3' of Linhasita cord. Cut the ends at a sharp angle. Feed the tails through the leaf pendant hole and through the loop of the cord. Pull tight. Create another knot on top of this. Slide on 2 coconut beads, create a knot on top of them.

Step

Step 2

String on the beads in the order shown.

Step

Step 3

To finish, feed the cord end through the crimp tube and through the wire protector and back down through the tube. Create a knot just below the tube. Crimp the tube. Burn the knot to secure it. Trim the excess cord off. Place the crimp cover over the crimped tube and close with pliers. You could always add a dot of super glue before closing for extra security.

Step 4

Attach jump rings and clasp.
