Brecciated Jasper Donut & Carnelian Necklace

Brecciated Jasper Donut & Carnelian Necklace

This necklace is perfect for a jewellery making beginner! Combine gorgeous brecciated jasper and carnelian to create a design that really stands out!

Please note the leather thonging is sold as a 5m length so can be used in multiple projects!


1. Cut the leather thonging to the length you would like your necklace and fold the leather thonging in half and push the folded end through the top of the gemstone donut, then thread the ends through so the donut hangs from the middle of the cord.

2. Thread the carnelian bead through the top of the cords to sit on top of the gemstone donut.

3. Insert one of the thread ends into the crimp and gently squeeze the central band of the crimp part with snipe nose pliers to grip it firmly.

4. Repeat on the other end of the thread with the crimp with hook.

5. Fasten the hook and loop and your necklace is complete!
