A Real Spring Statement

 I think I finally created the ULTIMATE statement necklace!

Thanks to Beadmixer, I found the perfect beads and findings for, what will be, my new favorite necklace! When I was looking around their online shop, I had a hard time staying focused. They have so many brightly colored beads and other interesting findings. I knew I wanted to make a brightly colored necklace that was super eye-catching. When I saw they not only had large turquoise howlite beads (yes, I know this is no surprise!), but they also had the bronze settings for them. My search was over!

I decided to build my extreme statement necklace around the turquoise beads. I knew I wanted to take advantage of the holes surrounding the bronze setting. When I came across the faceted cobalt beads I thought they would be the perfect addition to my necklace. Now all I needed was something dangly to hang from my cobalt beads. I landed on these amazing citrus faceted jade beads. These beads are so cheery, they look like candy!

Supplies:

6 Turquoise Howlite Cabochon

50mm Head Pins

40mm Eye Pins

– 15 28×11 Jade Faceted Drop Citrus Green

– 5 40X30 Bronze Settings

– 25 8×5 Cobalt Blue Acrylic Faceted Rondelle

– 5 10mm Bronze Jump Rings

– Jewelry Chain

– Glue

– Jewelry Tools

{Step 1}: Glue your cabochons to the bronze setting.

{Step 2}: Put your eye pins through your cobalt beads. Trim the ends down so they are 10mm. Then,use your pliers to round the end, forming a loop.

{Step 3}: Put your head pins through your jade beads. Trim the ends down so they are 9mm. Then, use your pliers to round the end, forming a loop. Hook the loop on the bottom loop of your cobalt bead.

{Step 4}: Count 4 holes down from the side of your setting. Open the top loop of your cobalt bead, hook it through the hole in your setting, and close the loop. Skip a hole, then add another bead. Keep skipping and adding beads until you have 5 beads connected. Repeat all steps for your other settings.

{Step 5}: Open your jump rings and connect them to the third hole from the center of your settings. Connect all of your settings together.

{Step 6}: Put a jump ring in the third hole from the center of your end settings. Slide your chain on your two open jump rings and connect. I made my chain long enough so I didn’t need to add a clasp. I can just slip my necklace over my head!Spring statement necklace / JCrew Inspired #HappinessiscreatingSpring statement necklace / JCrew Inspired #HappinessiscreatingSpring statement necklace / JCrew Inspired #HappinessiscreatingSpring statement necklace / JCrew Inspired #Happinessiscreating
