How to create an Amethyst Necklace

Amethyst Necklace

Step One

Feed on 1 x Peridot , 1 x Amethyst drop, and two more Peridot seed beads onto a featherweight headpin and make a wrapped loop at the top. Repeat this seven more times until you have eight individual drops.

Step Two

Now make two more drops but this time thread on 1 x Peridot, 1 x Amethyst drop, 1 x Peridot, 1 x Amethyst drop, 1 x Peridot and then make a wrapped loop at the top.

Step Three

For the final drop thread on 1 x Peridot, 1 x Amethyst drop, 1 x Peridot, 1 x Amethyst drop, 1 x Peridot, 1 x Amethyst drop, 1 x Peridot, and then make a wrapped loop at the top.

Step Four

Attach a Jumpring to the end of a 20 inch piece of beading thread using a crimp bead and crimping pliers.

Step Five

Thread five groups of seven amethyst Rondelles with groups of three Peridot seed beads after each group of amethysts.

Step Six

Add another Rondelle followed by one of the single Amethyst drop dangles, then feed on three more Rondelles and add the next amethyst drop dangle. Continue this until all 11 dangles are attached and arranged in a fan shape so that the central one is the longest. Continue threading on gemstones so the second half of the necklace mirrors the first.

Step Seven

Attach another Jumpring to the end of your necklace using a crimp bead and crimping pliers, then cover both crimp beads with crimp covers.

Step Eight

Attach a toggle clasp to the Jumprings to complete the necklace.
