Waterfall Memories Necklace Instructions
Designed by Bonnie Ogilvie for Dakota Stones

Tranquil style is achieved with Dakota Stones gemstone beads in this beautiful necklace. Lapis, Peruvian amazonite, and rainbow moonstone all make an appearance. A tassel focal completes the look of Waterfall Memories.

Step one:
Cut a length of Beadalon metallic silver on black cotton tassel cord approximately 2-3 inches long. Knot one end and string on a Dakota Stones lapis 6-10mm chip bead, a TierraCast silver Kenyan heishi spacer, and another lapis chip bead. Attach and knot the other end of the cord to a 2-inch silver-plated 20 gauge eye pin. Repeat three times, knotting to the same eye pin.

Step two:
Cut a length of tassel cord approximately 2-3 inches long. Knot one end and string on a Dakota Stones Peruvian amazonite 4-6mm pebble bead, a TierraCast antique silver 4mm Rococo round heishi spacer, and another Peruvian amazonite pebble bead. Attach and knot the other end of the cord to the same eye pin from the previous step. Repeat five times.

Step three:
Slide the 10mm antique silver-plated pewter filigree end cap onto the eye pin, to hide the tops of the tassel cord dangles. Add a lapis chip bead to the eye pin and make a wrapped loop at the top of the bead.

Step four:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 23 inches long. Slide a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube onto the wire, followed by half of the TierraCast antique silver butterfly clasp set. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.

Step five:
Add the following bead pattern to the wire:
  • A TierraCast Kenyan spacer
  • A lapis chip bead
  • A Kenyan spacer
  • 20 amazonite pebble beads
  • Four lapis chip beads
  • Three amazonite pebble beads
  • Four lapis chip beads
  • Two amazonite pebble beads
  • Four lapis chip beads
  • One amazonite pebble bead
  • 15 lapis chip beads
  • One Dakota Stones rainbow moonstone 4mm round bead
  • One rococo spacer
  • Two moonstone beads
  • One rococo spacer
  • One moonstone bead
Slide your tassel onto the wire and make a mirror image of the bead pattern on the other side of the tassel.

Step six:
Slide a crimp tube onto the wire, followed by the other half of the clasp. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.
