Designer Tips

  • Cut three pieces of 20-gauge copper wire, each 6" long.
  • Make a wrapped loop at one end of each wire.
  • For step-by-step illustrated instructions, see our blog article: DIY Funky Bohemian Turquoise Spike Jewelry Set
  • Choose beads, and add them to each wire.
  • Make a wrapped loop on the other side of each set of beads.
  • Dip the copper parts in Novacan to antique them.
  • Rinse with water and pat dry, then polish off the high points with an ULTRA polishing cloth.
  • For the earrings, add 5 links of chain to each side. (These chain links are unsoldered, so you can open and close them with your chain-nose pliers.)
  • To finish each earring, add one more link of chain, and use it to connect both chain ends to the ear wire.

  • To finish the necklace, add the chain to the pendant. Use approximately 30" of chain to make the pictured necklace. Or if you prefer a shorter necklace, you can add an antique copper clasp at the back.
