Autumn Leaf & Garnet Necklace

Autumn Leaf & Garnet Necklace

We love this autumnal design, featuring one of our most popular gemstones, garnet!

Step By Step Instructions

Find the middle of the chain necklace and cut using side cutters, you will insert the set gemstone here.

Next set the faceted stone in the wraptite link setting, these are really simple to set and don't require any tools other than a pair of round nose pliers.

You can see step by step photos of how to set the stone here.

Remember to ensure that you don't over squeeze the loops when tightening the setting - a good tip to avoid this is to put a piece of wire (around 0.8mm) in the loop either side of the setting before you squeeze to tighten it with your pliers. This will ensure you still have room to fit a jump ring.

Once the stone is secure, use one of the small jump rings to attach the leaf to one of the loops on the wraptite setting, making sure that the front of the leaf is the same side as the front of the stone.

Then using a small jump ring, attach one side of the wraptite setting to one of the loose ends of the chain and do the same on the other side to complete your necklace.

Always twist open jump rings rather than pull them apart to ensure a secure close and stop the shape of the jump ring becoming distorted - see details here.
