Lillypilly Etched Shell Fiddlehead Necklace Design Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
This gorgeous Lillypilly pendant reminded us of the curve of a fiddlehead fern, so our designer brought the colors of nature into the design to give it an earthy yet elegant look. You should have enough beads leftover to make a matching bracelet if you like!
Step one: Cut 22 inches of Beadalon® jewelry wire. Using a 2x2mm crimp tube, crimp the wire to one side of the clasp.
Step two: String three bronze keishi pearls followed by three turquoise round beads. Repeat this pattern until you have seven turquoise segments and then add three more pearls. Connect the bail to your Lillypilly pendant and string that next, then reverse the pattern as you work back toward the clasp.
Step three: Finish by crimping the other end of the wire to the remaining part of your toggle clasp and you are finished!
