Copper Elements Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Embrace the beauty of nature, the elegant balance of warmth and coolness, when you wear this necklace. With soft earth tones working with the organic color of copper, the end result will bring you to a state of bliss.

Step one:
Cut one piece of jewelry wire approximately 22 ½ inches long.

Step two:
Connect one end to the bar portion of the TierraCast ¾ inch antique copper-plated pewter Anna's toggle clasp using one 14K/20 gold-filled 2x2mm crimp tube. Cover the crimp tube with one 4mm antique copper-plated crimp cover. Read our Handy Tips on how to use a crimp tube and how to use a crimp cover if you need help.

Step three:
String the following pattern onto the wire:
  • three irregular stabilized turquoise nugget beads
  • three TierraCast antique copper-plated pewter medium love knot spacers
  • one 18mm brown and turquoise star with Picasso coin bead
  • three love knot spacers

Repeat this pattern three more times. Add four more turquoise nugget beads and then the Patricia Healey Copper large maple leaf pendant. Create a mirror image on the other side of the pendant.

Step four:
Connect the other end of the wire to the loop portion of the clasp with a second crimp tube and crimp cover.
