Gemstone Hoop Necklace
We are adding the project to your Jewelry Box.
The project was added to your Jewelry Box.
"This is a simple design that really makes your gemstones stand out! We've used Tiger Eye and Carnelian Gemstone beads (any shape will work, but keep them quite small - 4mm to 8mm works best). This pendant can be hung onto a chain, or, like we have done, put onto a beaded necklace. Tip: if you don't have a circular mandrel, just use any approx. 30mm tube-like object you can find. Even the lid off a drink bottle will work!"

Take 15cm of 18ga wire, and shape it around a round mandrel 30mm diameter.
Cut the wire, leaving a gap of about 1cm in the middle.
Using round nose pliers, form loops.
Take 24ga wire, and wrap 3-4 times around the base.
Attach as many beads required to fill a row, then wrap around 3-5 times. Continue this until the pendant is filled to your liking!
Trim any excess wire.
