I wear this necklace to always remind myself of the beauty of the beach!
TierraCastcharms and buttons decorate this multi-strand necklace beautifully. Each charm feature an ocean theme and the buttons look like textured shells. Cynthia played with texture even more by choosing a different chain for each strand of the necklace.
Cut a length of 4x2.5mm diamond cut antique brass crimped oval cable chain approximately 15 inches long. Attach each half of the TierraCast brass oxide pewter heirloom clasp set to each end of the chain using a TierraCast 4mm brass oxide open round jump ring for each.
Attach a TierraCast brass oxide pewter oval shell button to the center of the chain using an 8mm satin Hamilton gold-plated 18 gauge open jump ring. Attach the TierraCast antique gold-plated pewter sea turtle charm to the bottom hole of the button using another 8mm jump ring.
Slide a TierraCast antique gold-plated pewter cowrie shell bead onto a gold-filled 2-inch head pin with ball end and make a wrapped loop at the top of the bead. Attach this dangle to the same button hole the turtle is attached to using another 8mm jump ring.
Add a JBB 2mm antique vintage brass-plated pewter fancy crimp end to each end of the 1.5mm antique brass diamond cut ball chain and crimp in place by flattening the middle of each crimp end around the chain with pliers. Attach one end of chain to the jump ring at one end of your necklace. Attach the other end of chain to the jump ring on the other end of your necklace.
Attach a shell button to the center of the chain using an 8mm jump ring. Attach the TierraCast antique gold-plated pewter cut spindle pendant to the bottom hole of the button using another 8mm jump ring.
Attach one end of a two-foot length of antique brass-plated crimped oval link chain to the jump ring at one end of your necklace. Attach the other end of the chain to the jump ring at the other end of the necklace.
Attach a shell button to the center of the chain using an 8mm jump ring. Attach the TierraCast antique gold-plated pewter scalloped shell pendant to the bottom hole of the button using another 8mm jump ring.
