Simply Natural

By: Ann Dillard for Beadalon

You can spice up any outfit with this elegant necklace. The carnelian chips and turquoise pendant really make a fashion statement.

Simply Natural


  • 8” Greek leather cord – cut in half (two 4” pieces)
  • Four cord ends
  • One 6mm silver split ring
  • One medium silver lobster clasp
  • Two #2 silver crimp tubes
  • 10” .015” 49 strand Beadalon bead stringing wire
  • 8” 20 gauge silver Colorcraft wire
  • One medium turquoise drop pendant
  • 1 strand carnelian chips
  • Beadstrom™ Chain nose pliers
  • Beadstrom™ Round nose pliers
  • Designer Crimp Tool
  • Nipper Tool


  1. If hole in turquoise pendant goes from front to back instead of side to side, you will need to make it into a useable pendant. Thread turquoise pendant onto color craft wire and form to pendant with tips pointing up; the front tip should be about 2” long. Use the short end to create wrap above top of pendant. On the remaining wire that is centered above pendant, thread one carnelian chip and then make a loop by wrapping.
  2. Crimp one cord end onto one piece of leather cord. Attach lobster clasp to loop. Crimp another cord end to the other end or leather cord. Repeat with other piece of leather cord except attach the split ring to the loop of first cord end.
  3. Crimp Beadalon wire to one empty loop of one cord end on leather pieces (opposite clasp). String on 4” of carnelian chips, then add the pendant and complete by stinging another 4” of carnelian chips. Crimp wire to other empty cord end on other leather piece.

Tip:  An ideal finished length is 17 ½”.
