Nautical Ship Wheel Charm And Amazonite Necklace

This is a lovely make that would be perfect for any of your friends or family that have a love for the sea and boats!


1. Begin by cutting a length of wire about 5cm long and form a loop with round nose pliers.

2. Twist the wire around and fix the loop in place, you will need to snip off any excess ire with side cutters and squeeze the end of the wire for a neat finish.

3. Thread as many amazonite beads as you'd like onto the wire and start to form another loop.

4. Wrap the wire around the loop to secure them in place and trim any excess wire.

5. Using a pair of flat nose pliers and a pair of snipe nose pliers to open a 3.5mm jump ring. Add one end of the beaded wire to the jump ring and the loop of the nautical ship wheel charm before closing the jump ring again with your pliers. 

6. Open another 3.5mm jump ring and attach the opposite end of the beaded wire by the loop and before closing the jump ring, add your charm.
