A magnetic clasp makes this necklace easy to take on and off. I went for a layered effect but connected both strands of the necklace to the clasp to keep them together.
On misty mornings, gray fog adds a chill to the air, while morning dew provides a promise of the sparkling day ahead. This necklace captures the beauty of a Gray Dawn perfectly. Silver findings pair with gleaming Swarovski beads, while druzy agate beads from Dakota Stones add a taste of sparkle and shimmer.
Cut a length of antique silver-plated textured oval link chain approximately 16 inches long. Attach half of the antique silver-plated brass small magnetic clasp to one end using a 6mm 18 gauge antique silver-plated open jump ring. Repeat on the other end of the chain. Add a silver-plated brass round flower charm to the center link of the chain using a jump ring. Set this strand aside for now.
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 11 inches long. Slide a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube onto one end, followed by the last link of a 6-inch length of 5mm antique silver-plated rope chain. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.
String the following bead pattern onto the jewelry wire:
One Swarovski 6mm XILION bicone in Crystal Iridescent Green
One TierraCast antique silver 7mm beaded spacer
One Dakota Stones 10mm platinum druzy agate round bead
One beaded spacer
Repeat this pattern six times and then add a bicone to the strand.
Slide a crimp tube onto the end of the jewelry wire, followed by the last link of a 6-inch piece of rope chain. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Attach one end of this strand to the jump ring on one end of your first necklace strand. Attach the other end to the jump ring on the other end of the first necklace strand.

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!
