Jasper Donut Necklace

By: Selina Shehan for Rings & Things

This beautiful beaded necklace features a prominent gemstone trillion donut. The four colors of bead in the stand of the necklace pick up on the colors in the donut. For more information on Rings & Things and where you can find the materials for this project see Rings & Things profile page. For another great donut necklace, see the Arizone Summers Necklace.

  • 1 #39-550-A Interlock toggle clasp, sterling silver
  • 40" #61-738-49-21 0.024" 49-strand, Beadalon®, silver plated
  • Round-nose pliers
  • side cutters and/or side flush


  1. Cut two 20" strands of Beadalon.
  2. String the donut onto one strand and fold the Beadalon in half so the donut sits in the center of the strand.
  3. String twelve 4mm bicones onto each end of the strand, alternating colors.
  4. Run both strands through a 6mm round gemstone bead and pull tight to hang the donut from the strand.
  5. Choose one side of the strand and string the following pattern: 4mm siam/aurora borealis 2x, 4mm siam, 3mm jet, 4mm siam, 4mm siam/aurora borealis 2x, 4mm siam, 3mm jet, 4mm siam, 4mm siam/aurora borealis 2x, 6mm round gemstone. Repeat this pattern four more times.
  6. On the remaining strand, string the following: 3mm jet, 4mm siam, 3mm jet, 4mm siam, 3mm jet, 6mm round gemstone.
  7. Then, repeat the following pattern five times: 3mm jet, 4mm siam, two 3mm jet, 4mm siam/aurora borealis 2x, two 3mm jet, 4mm siam, 3mm jet, 6mm round gemstone.
  8. Instead of stringing the final 6mm gemstone round at the end of the fifth pattern set, run the Beadalon through the 6mm gemstone round from the other strand.
  9. Hold the two strands together and slide on a crimp bead, two 3mm jet crystals, one end of the toggle clasp, and two more 3mm jet.
  10. Push the two strands back through the crimp bead, pull until snug (but leaving enough room for flexibility) and crimp.
  11. Trim excess Beadalon and cover with a crimp cover.
  12. Repeat steps 2 – 11 with the second 20" strand of Beadalon.
