I like the cute star charms on this necklace.
Artbeads Chief Jewelry Designer Cynthia asked her daughter Jessica to join her on the Artbeads Cafe and make cute jewelry. Jessica ended up making this adorable necklace featuring star charms and a lovely TierraCast charm with a Swarovski flatback in the center. Cynthia taught her how to attach the focal to leather for a quick finishing touch. You can watch Cynthia teach Jessica how to make this necklace in this special Artbeads Cafe Live episode.
Attach the TierraCast brass oxide beaded bezel charm with Amethyst Swarovski crystal to the center loop of the B&B Benbassat antique silver-plated brass cut-out crescent pendant using a 6mm stainless steel 18 gauge open jump ring.
Add a Sweet & Petite 7x9mm white tiny star charm to one of the side loops on the crescent pendant using a jump ring. Repeat for the loop on the other side.
Attach a JBB antique silver-plated pewter crimp end cap with loop to the loop on one point of the crescent using a jump ring. Repeat for the loop on the other point of the crescent.
Cut a length of Leather Cord USA 1.5mm natural black round leather approximately 6 inches long. Add the end of the leather to one of the end caps on one side of your pendant. Crimp the end cap down around the leather using pliers. Repeat on the other side of the necklace.
Add a crimp end cap to each end of the leather and crimp in place with pliers.
Attach each half of the TierraCast antique silver classic clasp set to each end of the necklace using a jump ring for each.

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!
