Shell & Turquoise Necklace

Shell & Turquoise Necklace

We're obsessed with creating seashell jewellery right now! This design combines gemstones and shells for a beautiful and modern design.

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS

1. Cut 5cm length of 0.3mm sterling silver wire with side cutters for the shell bead.

2. Wire wrap the shell bead using round nose jewellery pliers to form a loop at the top - allow the loop to be big enough for the shell to have room to move to avoid breaking them. Follow our step by step tutorial on how to do this here.

3. Cut another length of wire about 5cm long and use this to wire wrap the turquoise bead, before closing the loops attach the shell to the bottom and the bail loop to the top. You can see the technique used in step by step photographs here.

4. Attach the chain and your design is complete!
