This necklace mixes texture and color to create a fun, summery necklace that will instantly transport you to the sand and surf!

Step one: Cut a length of Soft Flex jewelry wire to approximately 18 inches. Attach one end of the wire to a sterling silver open jump ring using a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube. Attach the jump ring to the loop end of a silver antique pewter sunburst clasp. For detailed instructions on how to use a crimp tube, click HERE or visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step two: String approximately four and a half inches or about 22 sliced shell beads with, followed by 1 ½ inches of conus heishi beads. Add a flower design cowrie shell bead, an inch and a quarter of heishi beads, another cowrie shell, an inch and a quarter of heishi beads, the final cowrie shell, and 1 ½ inches of heishi shells. Finish with another 22 pieces of sliced shell beads.

Step three: Attach the remaining end of the wire to a sterling silver open jump ring and attach that jump ring to the bar end of the toggle clasp, and trim excess wire.
