The Claddagh symbolizes love, friendship and loyalty. This necklace makes a wonderful gift for those you love on St. Patrick's Day or any day of the year!

Step one: Cut a length of Soft Touch to approximately 22 inches. Crimp one end to the bar end of an antique rhodium plated pewter clasp using a 2x2mm crimp tube. For instructions on how to crimp, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Attach a sterling silver open jump ring to the sterling Claddagh charm with green quartz.

Step two: String ten 4mm Czech glass dark green druk beads followed by an antique silver plated pewter Celtic bead cap. Add three 6mm chrysophase druk beads and another bead cap. String eleven 6mm dark green druk beads, a bead cap, three 6mm chrysophase beads, another bead cap and three 4mm dark green druks. Add the charm to the design at this point and reverse the pattern working back toward the clasp. Crimp the remaining wire to the loop end of the toggle and crimp the end.
