This jewelry set would look right at home in a Medieval castle. Every time I wear these pieces, I feel like a queen!
The TierraCast Opulence collection creates a regal statement in this necklace and earrings set. The golden items from the collection are paired with Czech glass beads in rich red tones, along with Teacup beads and TOHO Demi Rounds in complementary gold hues. Cynthia made this set during a Facebook Live design challenge. You can watch her make these pieces and other pieces here.
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 24 inches long. Slide a 14K/20 gold-filled 2x2mm crimp tube onto the end of the wire, followed by a gold-filled 14K 6.1mm open jump ring attached to half of the gold-plated ball clasp with Swarovski Crystals. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Hide the crimp with a 3mm gold-filled crimp cover.
Repeat this pattern five times, leaving off the last three TOHO Demi Round beads. Add the TierraCast gold-plated pewter Opulence pendant to the wire and make a mirror image of the entire bead pattern on the other side of the pendant.
Add a Teacup bead to a 2-inch gold-plated brass 21 gauge eye pin, followed by an 8mm burgundy pearl and another Teacup bead. Make a wrapped loop at the top of the beads.
Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
