multi-layer turquoise necklace

Layer turquoise stones in various shapes and sizes to make this unique Multi-Layer Turquoise Necklace.
Step 1

Cut three 48" [121.9 cm] pieces of transit cord.

Step 2

Align them all so the ends are even. Fold them in half and attach them to a closed jump ring with a lark’s head knot. Add a dab of glue over the lark’s head knot, then slide a turquoise heishi stone and metal lentil bead onto all of the cords. Push beads up to the knot.
TIP: To make a lark’s head knot, fold the cords in half. Place the closed jump ring over the fold. Grab the ends of the cords, bring them up and over the jump ring, then through the fold of the cord. Pull and tighten the knot.

Step 3

Hold two cords together and string turquoise nuggets onto both cords. Add a bead bug to the end to hold beads in place.

Step 4

String assorted shapes and sizes of turquoise beads onto the four individual cords. Mix in metal beads as an accent.

Step 5

Thread all ends through a metal lentil bead and a turquoise heishi stone. Pull cords taut and tie them to a closed jump ring. Add a dab of glue to the knot, tuck excess cord into the first several beads until hidden. Trim excess cord.

Step 6

Add a large lobster clasp to one side.
TIP: Link together a few jump rings and attach to the side without the clasp to add an extender.
