How to create a citrine necklace

citrine birthstone necklace

Step One

Make a wrapped loop at one end of the wire and tuck in any sharp edges.

Step Two

Thread on 16 x 8mm Citrine Rounds followed by the end loop of the chain and one of the smallest rough Citrine nuggets. Count 11 links and feed the end of the wire through.

Step Three

Add on a Citrine 8mm round followed by a slightly bigger Citrine nugget, and count 13 chain links before passing the wire through.

Step Four

Repeat step 3 but count 15 chain links and feed the wire through.

Step Five

Add a Citrine 8mm round, followed by your largest Citrine nugget and another Citrine round, then count 17 links before feeding through the wire.

Step Six

Now make the second half of the necklace in the same manner but reverse the number of links and the position of the Citrine rounds to mirror the first half.

Step Seven

Using round nose pliers make a hook style clasp and trim off any excess. Make a small loop at the end to prevent any sharp edges.

Step Eight

Thread each of the 7 Pearls onto its own featherweight Headpin and make them into wrapped loops, attach them to your chain using Jumprings so that you have 5 hanging from the central section and one on either side.
