It’s been a little while since I’ve posted my last tutorial. But when I got my hands on these supplies from Auntie’s Beads I couldn’t wait to work with them. It is very obvious that I love Turquoise beads. And I am completely in love with this necklace made with turquoise chips, a lampwork diamond bead and antique brass findings .
So last weekend I had a lot of fun playing with these beautiful Turquoise chips and today I want to share with you the making of this necklace.
Want to learn how to make your own? Here is what I’ve used to make this necklace:
– Blue Turquoise Chip Strand
– Brass Trigger Clasp
– Antique Brass Rolo Chain
– Lampwork Diamond Bead
– Jump Rings
– Eye Pins
– Step 1: Slide some chips on the eye pin (I’ve used 4 chips per pin).
Step 2: Using your round nose plier, make a loop on the end of the pin.
Step 3: Repeat steps 1 and 2 and now attach the loop to the first set.
Step 4: Repeat the steps above until you have a strand of approximately 22 cm.
Step 5: Now you will make another strand of 24 cm.
Step 6: Slide the lamp work bead on an eye pin making a loop on the end.
Step 7: With the help of a jump ring connect the bead to one end of the two strands.
Step 8: Take two pieces of chain of two sizes (mine are 18 and 21 cm approximately).
Step 9: Attach the smallest chain to the loop on the diamond bead.
Step 10: Now using another jump ring connect the longer chain to the end of the two beaded strand.
Step 11: Attach the clasp and jump ring to the end of the chain on either side to finish off the necklace.
And here is the completed piece.
This piece was very easy and fun to make. I just love how it turned on and now I’ve got myself a beautiful statement necklace.
