By the Sea Necklace

Good morning everybody! This weekend I made some jewelry that I was pretty excited about. I have an insane amount of beads waiting for inspiration to strike and it finally did this weekend. Seriously, the beads are at least two years old. That’s me!

Anyways, the aptly named By the Sea necklace is inspired by the beautiful turquoise and foamy white color the waves get when they crash to the shore. Plus, the charms imitate shells so, I had no other choice but to name it something ocean related.

  • white shell/mother of pearl big disc
  • turquoise discs, medium
  • white discs, small
  • four different varieties of metal chains
  • clasp
  • jump rings
  • jewelry tools

First up, cut up three pieces of chain, in three different lengths (10.5”, 7.5”, 6.5”).

Attach the big disc to the center of the longest chain with a jump ring.

Next, also with jump rings, attach about four medium blue discs to each side of the chain spaced evenly.

To finish this part, attach small white discs in between each blue disc.

For the second longest length of chain, attach the leftover medium blue discs spaced evenly.

For the shortest piece of chain, attach the white small discs.

Next up, cut the chains that will finish the necklace. Cut one 4.5” long and the other 9” long. This will make it adjustable. Attach a big jump ring on one side and a clasp at the other end.

Place the three beaded chains to the big jump ring. Make sure to do this in order of length so the necklace lays properly.

That’s it! The longer length on one side of the chain allows you to adjust the necklace depending on your outfit cut or look.

As you can see the clasp will end up a little to the side, but it won’t be visible once you put the necklace on.
