TierraCast Hoop and Feather Necklace with Iridescent Green Pearls
designed byCynthia Kimura
Approximate Size22 Inches
I had fun using the TierraCast hoop at the center of this necklace in a different way â€“ as a pendant bail!
This necklace showcases how hoops can be used in unique ways. Cynthia dangled her pendant from the top loop of the hoop and attached her beaded strands to the hoop itself for a fun focal for her design. See more inspiration for using hoops in your jewelry in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Attach the TierraCast antique silver-plated pewter 2-inch feather pendant to the loop of a 1-inch 20 gauge sterling silver eye pin using a TierraCast small silver-plated open round jump ring. Add a Swarovski 12mm round crystal pearl in Iridescent Green to the eye pin and make a simple loop at the top. Attach your dangle to the small loop of the TierraCast silver-plated brass 42mm large wire hoop using a jump ring.
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 10 inches long. Slide a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube bead onto the end and then bring the wire around the frame of the TierraCast hoop. Then, go back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Hide the crimp with a sterling silver 3mm crimp cover.
Add a Swarovski 5mm Bicone in Light Topaz Shimmer to the wire and then add the following pattern:
One Indian silver 4mm daisy spacer
One Swarovski 10mm coin crystal pearl in Iridescent Green
One daisy spacer
One Swarovski 4mm XILION Bicone in Tanzanite AB
One Light Topaz Shimmer Bicone
One Tanzanite AB Bicone
Repeat this pattern three times and then add a spacer, a coin pearl, a spacer, and a Light Topaz Shimmer Bicone.
Add a crimp tube to the end of the wire, followed by a 6-inch length of silver-plated brass small smooth and textured round double link chain. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Hide the crimp with a crimp cover.
Repeat Steps 2-4 to make the other side of the necklace. Then, open the last links on the chain at one end of the necklace and attach half of the TierraCast 5/8-inch antique silver-plated pewter Anna's toggle and clasp. Close the links. Repeat on the other end of the necklace.

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!
