Follow this tutorial and learn how to make this beautiful layered necklace using the soft pink rose quartz beads. Mixing the beads with gold coloured findings work perfectly together :)
Come and join me and create this simple yet stunning necklace, you will be sure to stand out from the crowd with this design.
Rose Quartz - I used 6mm 8mm & 10mm rounds.
Seamless Rounds in light gold 4mm
Wire - I used 0.38 steel cord in a gold colour
Lobster clasp - 14mm gold clasp
Crimp - 2mm in gold
Jump rings - 6mm gold rings
Headpins - 50mm gold ball end pin 50mm
Eyepin - 50mm gold pin
Cut around 15" of wire. Place a crimp on one end of the wire and loop it through a jump ring, thread the wire back through the crimp and crimp in place.
Start to thread beads onto the wire, in the sequence below:
2 x seamless light gold 4mm beads, 1 x 6mm rose quartz.
Repeat this 25 more times and finish the sequence with 2 more seamless light gold 4mm beads.
Now thread on a crimp bead, thread through a jump ring and back through the crimp bead. Crimp in place. Attach a lobster clasp onto the end of your necklace using another jump ring.
To create the gradient of pearls in the center of the necklace you will need ;
19 x 6mm rose quartz beads
9 x 8mm rose quartz beads
8 x 10mm rose quartz beads
20 x eye pins
11 x headpins
Take a look at this image to see which order to loop together your eyepins with rose quartz beads threaded onto them.
Remember to end each strand with a rose quartz beads on a headpin.
If you have any left over beads, why don't you create matching earrings or a cluster bracelet.

"Just used my new kumihimo handle and weighted bobbins and they are great. My kumihimo has never been so neat and the thread/ weave so tight. It's great."
