Labradorite Silver 'n' Gold Necklace

Labradorite Silver 'n' Gold Necklace

This design uses the popular mixed metals look along with eye-catching faceted Labradorite beads to create a unique, delicate and modern necklace. Mixed metals is a style that has really taken off over the past year, and we are big fans. You can create some really unique looks ... such as this necklace - which, you could also loop the wire to make it into a layered bracelet! 

Step by step instructions

Start by deciding the length you want your necklace. 

Cut your flex-rite wire to length using side cutters.

Take one end of the wire, thread it through a 2x2mm crimp then through the loop on the lobster clasp and back through the crimp. 

Using magical crimping pliers, gently crimp and you will create a little round bead which secures as a normal crimp would.

Thread on four labradorite beads, a curved silver tube bead and four more labradorite beads (you could always use five on each side as you have ten in a pack!) 

Take the other end of the wire and as above, thread it through a 2x2mm crimp, a jump ring then back through the crimp and using magical crimping pliers gently crimp to form a bead.

Your necklace is now complete!

You could choose your personal choice of beads from our large range of semi precious stone beads.
