This simple necklace will only take you minutes to make and is a perfect gift for someone.
Did you know that peridot is the birthstone for August? This would make such a lovely gift for a friend's birthday.
Start by setting the peridot faceted stone in a sterling silver wraptite link setting.
Place the faceted stone face down (flat side down) onto a firm surface such as a magazine placed on your work surface. Apply gently pressure to 'click' the stone into place (providing the stone is a good fit).
Using a piece of wire to keep the loop open, squeeze to tighten the setting around the stone with the tips of round nose jewellery pliers.
Using snipe or flat nose pliers, open a jump ring, loop on the wraptite setting and attach it to the sterling silver chain.
Your necklace is now complete!
Round nose pliers - for bending loops in wire
Or pack of pliers & side cutters which is an economical way of buying all the pliers you will need for every project!
Make the design your own by using your favourite jewellery supplies.
