Subtlety Natural Gemstone Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This colorful necklace with its crystals and faceted stones is a subtle design of dainty teardrop Botswana Agates held together with a beautiful sterling silver heart toggle. Each of the teardrop agates is like a miniature painting. This necklace could surprise you as being the one you reach for the most, adding subtle sparkles to any outfit.

Step One: Lay out twenty of the 8x12mm Botswana agate faceted teardrops in an order which appeals to you. Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately twenty inches. Crimp the wire to one part of the stylized heart toggle clasp. For instructions on how to crimp, please Click Here.

Step Two: String forty-one 3mm SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS faceted round, crystal silver shade beads. Follow with one Botswana agate, and then alternate with the faceted crystal silver shade beads and the teardrops until your twenty agates are used. Then finish with forty-one more 3mm faceted round crystals.

Step Three: Crimp the remaining end of the wire to the other part of your heart toggle.
