Silk and Leather Gemstone Necklace

By:

Multicolored gemstones and leather cord come together to create this casual, funky necklace from Katie Hacker.

Silk and Leather Gemstone Necklace

Materials:

  • 1-yard length of size #4 white silk bead cord
  • 18" length of 1mm brown leather cord
  • 54" length of 24-gauge silver ColourCraft wire
  • Silver torpedo clasp
  • Two silver suede cord ends
  • Sixteen assorted gemstone chips
  • Beadalon Big Eye beading needle
  • Nipper Tool
  • Beadstorm™ Chain Nose Pliers
  • Thread cutter

Steps:

  1. Thread the needle and use it to string a gemstone chip 2" from the end. Tie a double knot, then string another chip about 1" away. Repeat until all of the chips are strung.
     
  2. Hold one end of the silk and leather cords together and attach a suede cord end. Twist the cords together and attach a suede cord end to the other end.
     
  3. Cut eighteen 3" pieces of wire. Wrap each wire piece around the leather and silk cord in a tight coil between two gemstone chips. Wrap a wire coil near each end of the necklace and anywhere along the necklace that looks too loose. Attach a clasp to the necklace.
