This amethyst teardrop necklace is so pretty! The design really showcases the pretty shade of the purple amethyst briolettes and their facets which glisten in the light beautifully.
To make this necklace you get to try a new technique of wire wrapping briolettes, an invaluable skill you will use again and again!
Are you thinking of making this as a gift? Why not add a presentation box or gift bag to your order.
Start by using side cutters to cut the 0.3mm wire to 6cm lengths.

Now you are ready to attach your briolettes to your chain with the 5mm sterling silver jump rings.
In order to get as even length as possible between each briolette, start by attaching the briolettes from the bottom of the chain then working your way up.
As you have an even number of briolettes attach one to the left and one to the right of the longest part of the chain then work up attaching five to the left and five to the right of the longest part of the chain until they are all attached.

There you have it, a beautiful handmade necklace ideal for a unique present that no-one else will have.
