I love how autumn leaves look against a bright blue morning sky. The copper bead caps and blue Czech glass in this necklace remind me of just that!
The copper bead caps in this necklace are a wonderful complement to the Rose Gold Swarovski pearls and a lovely contrast to the turquoise blue Czech glass beads. They also look wonderful with the copper chain that finishes the necklace. You can see more inspiration for using bead caps in your designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately nine inches long. Slide a TierraCast antique copper 2x2mm crimp onto the end of the wire, followed by a TierraCast medium oval copper open jump ring. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Hide the crimp with a 3mm antique copper crimp cover.
Add a turquoise Czech glass bead to the center of the strand and then make a mirror image of the bead pattern on the other side of the center bead.
Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
