TierraCast Caravan Collection Necklace with Gold Accents
designed byCynthia Kimura
Approximate Size22 Inches
This necklace looks like a treasure you'd find in a desert oasis! TierraCast's Caravan Collection was the perfect accent to the glittering beads and chain in this necklace.
TierraCast's Caravan Collection is inspired by the art and architecture of the Middle East. Becky kept that in mind as she picked out the beads and components for a challenge that Cynthia completed live on Instagram She surprised Cynthia with the components and Cynthia made this necklace during the live video.

Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately ten inches long. Cut a six-inch length of 24 gauge Gold Artbeads Designer Wire and attach it to the TierraCast antique gold-plated pewter Mehndi charm by making a wrapped loop. Make another wrapped loop at the top of the wire and slide the charm onto the jewelry wire.
Add the following pattern to one side of the charm:
One TierraCast antique gold 4mm Teke Heishi spacer
One Czech glass 5x3mm transparent Montana blue with antiqued gold finish rondelle bead
One bicone from the Swarovski 4mm Bicone Gilt-y Pleasure Designer Blend
One Czech glass rondelle
One Teke spacer
One Dakota Stones gold druzy agate 6mm faceted round bead
One TierraCast antique gold Pamada spacer bead
One druzy bead
Repeat the pattern twice, leaving off the last druzy, Pamada, and druzy sequence.
Make a mirror image of the bead pattern on the other side of the charm.
Slide a Beadalon gold color crimp tube onto the end of the wire, followed by the last link of a 6 1/2-inch length of 7.5x6mm gold-plated twisted link chain. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Repeat on the other end of the necklace.
Open the chain link on one end of your necklace and add the bar component of the TierraCast antique gold-plated pewter temple clasp set. Close the link. Attach the loop component of the clasp to the other end of the necklace using a 6mm gold-plated 18 gauge open jump ring.
