This necklace is perfect for the guy in your life. Whether you are making a gift for your son or a hip dad, they are sure to love these classic heishi shells with the funky etched lizard pendant. NOTE: This design makes a 16 in. necklace. Some men will need a larger size, if that is the case make sure you allow for more wire and beads.

Step one: Attach the 9mm sterling silver jump ring to the oval bone lizard pendant and set aside.

Step two: Cut an 18-inch length of ZambaPro™ 49 .014 jewelry wire. Use a 2mm antique brass-plated crimp bead to crimp to a 6mm gunmetal-plated open jump ring. For help using Crimp Beads please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. Attach the jump ring to the 12x6.5mm gunmetal-plated trigger clasp.

Step three: String eight inches of black lip heishi shell beads, the lizard pendant and eight inches of shell beads. Use a crimp bead to crimp to a 6mm jump ring.
