Mermaid in the Moon Necklace Tutorial
The lovely glass bead used in this free necklace design goes by a number of names including mermaid beads and mystic aura beads. They've even been mistaken for moonstone gemstones! They are 2 half-spheres of frosted glass fused together with an AB layer in the center, providing a mystical shimmering effect.
Created by: Janet Boyington
Cut chain in the center.
Cut 3" of sterling silver wire.
Make a wire-wrapped loop, attached to one end of the cut chain. For step-by-step instructions on making wire-wrapped loops, see Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF).
Add the beads: moon bead, "mermaid" bead, moon bead, in whichever configuration is pleasing.
Wire-wrap the second side to the other half of the chain necklace. Voila!
