Emerald Lagoon Necklace

by Megan Piper

This necklace has a warm tropical feel with its deep blue-green emerald tones and gold TierraCast findings. Picture a secluded island with a pleasant glowing lagoon in the tropical golden sun. The gold findings are so beautifully detailed that this necklace could be worn showing off the clasp and findings in the front.

1 hank size 8 blue-green opaque Czech seed beads
2 gold TierraCast hammered base metal cones
1 antique gold TierraCast classic base metal toggle clasp
2 3mm corrugated round gold base metal beads
2 2.5-inch sections of 20 gauge round gold German craft wire
6 1-yard sections of size #1 white Stringth bead cord
1 size 12 flexible twisted steel beading needle

You will need either Hypo Cement or clear nail polish, which is not included in the kit.
