The dark brown and bronze colors in this necklace are a wonderful complement to nature's beauty as summer fades to fall. If you prefer a softer design, feel free to use the alternative components we've listed below.
Step One: Use the antique vintage brass-plated pewter leaf pinch bail to create a layered pendant using the 40x30mm mother of pearl pendant in light olive swirling ivy and the 1.5x.05mm rectangle in green-gold lizard. Pinch the bail together. For help with bails visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
Step Two: Cut a 24-inch piece of ZambaPro 49 .019 jewelry wire. Use a 2x2mm 14k/20 crimp tube to crimp one end of the wire to one end of the antique vintage brass-plated pewter flower toggle clasp. Trim any excess wire. For help with crimp tubes visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
Step Three: On the wire, thread a combination of head drilled keshi pearls in metallic olive and 6mm druk beads in olivine and amethyst crackle. In our design we used a druk bead only every inch or so, but you may use more if you choose. Once you complete half the necklace, string on the bail from step one and continue stringing pearls and druks until you reach the end of the wire. Crimp the end of the wire to the other half of the toggle clasp using a crimp tube. Trim any excess wire.
