Materials Used To make The  Project

Quick Project Steps

Creating the Links: Cut a piece of 20-gauge wire (~8 inches) and use round nose and chain nose pliers to form a loop at one end. Coil the wire around the neck of the loop, add a bead, and repeat the coiling on the other end to create a link.
Adding Beads to Links: Use labradorite pebble beads for an organic look. The size of the bead will determine the overall length of your necklace.
Making Pearl Charms: For each link created, add three Potomac pearls to head pins. Create a coiled eye pin at the top of each pearl charm.
Assembling the Necklace: Use jump rings to connect the links and attach pearl charms. Ensure that all components are facing the correct direction for uniformity.
Creating the Clasp: Use a 5-inch piece of 20-gauge wire to create a handmade clasp, ensuring it matches the aesthetic of the necklace.
Final Assembly: Connect all components, including the handmade clasp, to complete your necklace.
