Topaz Galaxy Necklace

By: Fernando DaSilva for Beadalon

Create a beautiful beaded topaz choker using glass and gemstone beads.


  • 5 - 12mm Topaz round fire-polish glass beads
  • 9 - 4mm Red smooth round color-coated glass beads
  • 9 - 4mm Red aventurine semi-precious gemstone beads
  • 57 - 4mm Brown smooth round color-coated glass beads
  • Plain sterling EZ-Crimp S-hook clasp
  • 3 - 1.0 in. Head pins, white plating
  • 6mm Jump ring, silver plated
  • 19 in. length - Beadalon 19 Strand, silver plated .015 in. stringing wire
  • 5 lengths, 3/4 in. ea - Small cable chain
  • 10 - 7mm Dog bone spacer beads, silver plated
  • Designer mighty crimper
  • Designer Ergo cutter
  • Designer round nose pliers



  1. Slide the Beadalon 29 Strand silver plated wire all the way inside of the EZ-Crimp end. Use the mighty crimper to close it securely. Trim excess wire.
  2. Thread onto the wire in the following pattern:

    7 brown beads, 1 dog bone spacer, 7 brown beads, 1 aventurine bead, 1 dog bone spacer, 1 red bead, a piece of chain(slide the wire on the first link of it), 1 topaz bead, the last link of the cable chain, 1 red bead, 1 dog bone spacer and 1 aventurine bead. Repeat the last pattern until the second piece of the chain has being strung on the wire.
  3. String 7 brown beads, 1 red bead, 1 dog bone spacer, 1 red bead, chain link, large topaz bead.
  4. Half of the necklace has been strung! Repeat the patterns detailed above in steps 2 and 3 to finish the other side. Swap the position of red and aventurine beads for an adventurous splash.
  5. End the beaded strand by stringing on the other EZ-Crimp end. Crimp it. Trim excess wire.
  6. Make dangles with the 3 remaining beads. String each onto a head pin. Make a wrapped loop above the bead. Open a jump ring; string all the dangles onto it. Attach the jump ring to the open part of the EZ crimp end. This polished finish to the clasp adds character to the necklace.
