Pendulum Necklace | Mini-Make Monday

Geometric shapes and semi-precious gemstones continue to be a non-stopping trend this year, so when the NEW agate connectors and 3D geometric charms arrived, I knew I had the perfect partnership for a Mini-Make Monday project. The 3D geometric hollow diamond charm is so damn awesome (doesn’t it remind you of a space shuttle?) plus it comes in three colours to choose from – antique silver, rose gold and gold. Next, you need to decide on your favourite of the agate connectors. Personally I LOVE anything deep blue/teal so the gold and navy agate connector had to be mine. It doesn’t required any skill to make the necklace, but I think the components just work so well together. Which is your favourite? Let me know in the comments below!

This week’s Mini-Make really lives by its name so it’s perfect for beginners. Depending on your choice of chain you might need to cut your chain to length, attach a jumpring to each end and then a lobster clasp to one of them. Next, attach the agate connector and the 3D charm together, pop it onto the chain using jumprings and you’re done!
