Retired - Desert Walk Necklace

PROJECT N780
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
The two main elements of this design, a gemstone and concrete, seem like the perfect pairing when set down into a raw brass bezel. The natural color of the concrete really makes the beautiful gemstone stand out.
Instructions
Please note you will also need a disposable mixing cup, some way of measuring tablespoons and teaspoons, tap water, and something such as a popsicle stick to stir your concrete.
  1. Please watch the video: How to Make Concrete Jewelry.
  2. In the video you will learn how to mix your concrete and also how to make this pendant. Let cure before going onto the next step.
  3. For the necklace, it is simply 3 feet of chain. Slide your pendant onto the chain. The chain links are all open, not soldered, meaning that you can use them just like jump rings. Open the end chain link and connect it to the chain link on the other end of your 3 feet of chain. Close the link back up.
  4. All done, enjoy!
