This green amethyst necklace is so simple to make and hangs beautifully on the neck.
We've combined one of our beautiful green amethyst faceted puffed cube beads with sterling silver 4mm metal beads but you can choose any suitable beads to complete the look.
We have used our versatile sterling silver beading chain (also available in gold vermeil), which has small, closely connected links which looks lovely and modern with a few gemstone beads threaded onto it.
1. Add a crimp with loop to one end of the beading chain squeeze the central band of the tube gently with snipe nose pliers.
2. Thread on the beads.
3. Add a crimp with loop to the other side of the beading chain and secure in place.
4. Use snipe nose pliers to open the loop on the bolt ring clasp and attach it to the crimp loop before closing.
5. Fasten the necklace and your design is complete!
Make the design your own by using your favourite supplies.
