Jewelry Making Tutorial: Sandi's Multi-Strand Necklace

This necklace is for Sandi, one of six moms who inspired our Mother's Day collections & projects. to see Sandi's Collection, click here.  



this necklace is composed of several strung segments of beadalon, gently twisted together & crimped off in caps to make it look like each strand is coming from the same place. we chose to feature iridescent blush & peach crystal, matte turquoise rounds, silver hematite, tiny opaque blue crystal, plus some silver accent beads. we finished the necklace with a shiny silver rolo chain, and a modest shiny silver lobster claw clasp. this necklace is sweet, sophisticated, & sassy.
