4 Ways To Make A Briolette Necklace

BRIOLETTES 

We LOVE briolettes here at Kernowcraft!

Not only do they come in a beautiful range of gemstones but they always make jewellery designs look amazing. 

A briolette is an oval, pear shape or tear drop shaped gemstone cut with triangular facets.  

They are versatile, elegant and unique. We have used briolettes in many designs, but one of our favourite designs is to quite simply thread one on to a necklace. They hang perfectly on your neck with the facets catching the light, attracting compliments and also lending themselves to so many outfit styles.

MAKE YOUR OWN BRIOLETTE NECKLACE

Sometimes the simpler the design, the better! Which is why we love this necklace idea. It is so easy to create and can be modified to give a personal twist.

We have made the briolette necklace 4 ways, using 4 different threads / wire / clasps, giving you a choice of ideas on how to make your own necklace.

For more inspiration take a look at some of our 'Make The Look' jewellery designs; there a many step by step designs using a variety of our lovely gemstones briolettes.

It's simple design leaves the beauty of the briolette gemstone to speak for itself.
