Learn how to make this rock-pool inspired Neptune's Necklace using an Antique Silver Twist Heart Toggle Clasp and Tourmaline Tooth Nuggets.

Step 1

Cut around 8" of wire. Fold one end of the wire over about half an inch and secure the folded end with a silver callote.
Thread a jumpring onto the callote and close the hook to secure the jumpring.

Step 2

Thread one 4mm silver bead onto the wire, catching the loose bit of folded wire inside of it and the following beads so that it is hidden. 

Step 3

Start to choose the smallest and lightest of the Tourmaline tooth nugget beads and thread them on so that the increase in size and darkness towards the middle of the wire, and then decrease in size and darkness towards the other side of the wire.
This should use around 50 to 60 Tourmaline tooth beads.
Finish the strand with another 4mm silver bead.

Step 4

Finish the strand by folding the wire again close to the end bead.
Thread the folded bit of wire into the necklace to hide it under the beads.
Secure the folded end with a silver callote.
Thread a jumpring onto the callote and close the hook to secure the jumpring.

Step 5

Measure out 4 strands of Rhodium Plated Brass Chain, each measuring 5".
If you want your necklace to be longer or shorter, alter this length of chain accordingly. 

Step 6

Attach two of the chains to the jumpring on both end of the wire with Tourmaline tooth nuggets on it.

Step 7

Attach the two loose ends of chain to a jumpring, and repeat on the other side of the necklace. 

Step 8

On one end of the necklace open the jumpring and attach the heart hoop for the toggle clasp.
On the other end of the necklace open the jumpring and secure the stick part of the toggle clasp.
