mint morganite necklace

Do you have a friend or family member that loves jewelry? Make this beautiful, trendy Mint Morganite Necklace to give for Christmas this year!
Step 1

First, cut about 15" of stringing wire.

Step 2

Next, open the jump ring to detach about 1¼" of disc chain from the necklace then close the jump ring.
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 3

Thread one end of the wire through a crimp bead and then through the jump ring at one end of the 1¼" disc chain. Fold the wire over and thread it back through the same crimp bead. Push the crimp bead up until it is snug against the jump ring.

Step 4

Add a little glue inside the crimp bead then squeeze the crimp bead closed with your needle nose pliers.

Step 5

Thread beads onto the wire in the following order: five faceted pink beads, five Morganite beads, one faceted pink bead, five Morganite beads, your Mint pendant, five Morganite beads, one faceted pink bead, five Morganite beads and five faceted pink beads.
TIP: Be sure to tuck the excess wire inside the first few beads

Step 6

Repeat Steps 2-4 for the other side of the wire. Pull the wire so it fits tightly between the jump ring and the last bead. After tucking inside the last few beads, trim any excess wire as needed. Set aside.

Step 7

For the center strand of your necklace, cut about 10" of string wire.

Step 8

Open the jump ring to detach about 3" of disc chain from the necklace then close the jump ring.

Step 9

Repeat Steps 3-4.

Step 10

Thread beads onto the wire in the following order: three faceted pink beads, three and three faceted pink beads.
TIP: Be sure to tuck the excess wire inside the first few beads.

Step 11

Repeat Steps 2-4, but with 3" of disc chain, for the other side of the wire. Pull the wire so it fits tightly between the jump ring and the last bead. After tucking inside the last few beads, trim any excess wire as needed. Set aside.

Step 12

For the short strand of your necklace, detach about 15" of disc chain from the necklace, including the closure.
TIP: If this measurement is too short, adjust length of the chain as needed.

Step 13

Attach the beaded strands to the necklace with the jump rings at the ends so they hang as desired.
TIP: With your excess materials, get creative by making earrings and a bracelet to match!
