Lucky Silver Horseshoe Pearl Necklace

This lucky silver horseshoe pearl necklace is a lovely project for you to make a beautiful, unique necklace for a gift or for wedding jewellery. We have used our new horseshoe charm - you can see our full range of charms here

Step by step instructions

Start by glueing your pearl drop into the sterling silver peg. We recommend using Devcon 5 minute epoxy glue for super-fast, high strength, high quality bonds.

Prepare the glue by mixing equal amounts of the resin and hardener in a small dish. Use a fine point such as a cocktail stick to dab a bit of glue onto the cap of the peg and gently place it in the half drilled hole in the turquoise bead. Once mixed, the glue sets in 5 minutes so ensure you set your pearl straight away. Gently place it down and leave it to set. For full instructions plus some hints and tips on mixing and application, click here.

Cut the chain in half using side cutters

Now you can attach the pearl beads using 0.3mm wire, ensuring you attach one end to the loose chain and the other end to a 3mm jump ring. For tips on wire wrapping beads click here.

Once this is done you can attach the jump rings to both top holes of the horseshoe charm.

Use flat nose or snipe nose pliers to open and close your 3mm sterling silver jump rings. For tips on opening and closing jump rings neatly click here.

We have used our popular mini belcher chain for this necklace but you could choose another chain from our large selection of chains.

You could easily change the design by choosing from our large selection of beads and charms.
