Amethyst & Heart Affirmation Charm Necklace

Amethyst & Heart Affirmation Charm Necklace

We love this pretty design, featuring an affirmation charm with a delicate wire-wrapped amethyst briolette and heart charm.

Easily customise this jewellery making kit by choosing your favourite briolette beads and charms from our range.

This kit also contains more jump rings, wire and briolettes than you need, so you can keep them for future projects!

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS

1. Firstly, wire wrap the briolette bead. Using 15-20cm of sterling silver round wire, slip the briolette onto the wire around 3-4cm down. Pinch both ends of the wire together at the top of the bead to form a triangle shape. Use round nose pliers to bend the longer length to a right angle and if necessary, use side cutters to cut the short side of the wire. Use round nose pliers to form a loop with the longer side of wire by bending it to a right angle and wrapping it around the tip of the pliers.

2. Before wrapping the wire, slide the loop onto the oval jump ring already attached to the open heart charm.

3. Hold the loop flat using snipe nose pliers and begin wrapping the wire down towards the bead. Wrap it back up towards the loop, trim and tuck in with snipe nose pliers. Your wire wrapped briolette should now be secure on your charm.

4. Use a pair of snipe nose pliers or flat nose pliers to twist open a jump ring and attach to the loop of the heart charm as well as the affirmation charm before twisting the jump ring closed.

5. Thread the necklet chain through the charm and fasten it to complete your necklace design.
