black quartz collar necklace

Make this fantastic Black Quartz Collar Necklace to accessorize your favorite outfit using agate and quartz beads. Pair them with a matching bracelet stack and earrings.
Step 1

Cut a 12" [30.5 cm] piece of transite.

Step 2

Tie a closed jump ring to one end. Add a dab of glue to the knot.

Step 3

Slide on a Gold agate bead. Push the bead to the end so it is flush against the jump ring. Tuck the excess transite inside this bead.

Step 4

Add a dab of glue to the knot formed in Step 2 and use the nozzle on the tube of glue to push some additional glue inside the Gold agate bead for a more secure hold.

Step 5

Add about 4½" [11.4 cm] of quartz chip beads to the transite followed by another Gold agate bead.

Step 6

Tie a jump ring onto the transite so it is flush against the last bead added. Repeat Step 4 for this end. Let all glue dry.

Step 7

Cut two 5" [12.7 cm] pieces of chain.

Step 8

Carefully open the jump ring on one end of your beaded transite, slide on the last link from one chain piece and close the jump ring. Repeat on the other end.
TIP: To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp the jump ring on both sides with chain nose pliers and twist the ring open, from side-to-side. Never pull the jump ring which can cause distortion.

Step 9
Finally, on the open end of each chain, add a jump ring; however, on one of the jump rings, include a lobster clasp.
