Tortuga, an island in the Caribbean, was the inspiration for this organic looking piece. We love the thought of swimming with the turtles in the tropical waters, and brought in the colors of the blooms to accent the piece.

Step one: Cut a 20-inch length of .019 medium soft flex jewelry wire. Use a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube to crimp to the loop end of the sterling silver square vine toggle clasp. For help using Crimp Tubes please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step two: String a 5mm red square glazed porcelain bead and three 22mm ruby zoisite puffy coin beads; repeat two more times. String a porcelain bead, the rectangle turtle with tube pendant and another porcelain bead. Reverse the instructions to finish the necklace and crimp to the bar end of the toggle clasp.
