My mom has an amazing green thumb, so I made this necklace to remind her of her garden in springtime.
Spring colors create a peaceful scene in this lovely necklace. Czech glass flowers and rondelles make the perfect backdrop to the Gardanne Beads enameled focal at the center of the design. This necklace would make a wonderful Mother's Day gift. You can see more options for Mother's Day gifts in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 11 inches long. Slide a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube onto one end, followed by a sterling silver 5.95mm open jump ring. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Use a sterling silver 3mm crimp cover to hide the crimp.
Repeat this pattern five times, leaving the pink flower bead off of the last set of beads. Slide a crimp tube and a jump ring onto the wire. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Hide the crimp with a crimp cover.
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!
