Instructions:
Necklace


Step one:
String the following pattern onto the sterling silver 22 gauge 3-inch eye pin:
  • One Dakota Stones blue apatite 10x20mm double-drilled rectangle bead
  • One TierraCast silver antique small Turkish heishi spacer
  • One Swarovski 6mm faceted round in Fern Green
  • One Turkish spacer
  • One apatite bead
  • One Turkish spacer
  • One Fern Green faceted round
  • One Turkish spacer
Repeat this step for the other stringing hole of the apatite beads.

Step two:
Attach a Swarovski 13mm cabochette pendant in Fern Green to the bottom of each eye pin using a sterling silver 6.10mm open jump ring. For help opening and closing jump rings, please see our Handy Tip Video. Create a wrapped loop at the top of each eye pin. Our Wrapped Loop Handy Tip can provide further instruction on this technique.

Step three:
Cut a length of the silver-plated textured oval cable chain approximately 20 inches long. Attach the top of the two eye pins to the center of the chain using sterling silver 5.35mm open jump rings. Attach the JBB antique silver-plated pewter leaves square toggle clasp set to each end of the chain using 5.35mm jump rings.

Repeat this step for the other stringing hole of the apatite bead.
