Clover green briolette necklace

Spring — the season where green is always in fashion — is just around the corner. I couldn’t resist the fresh feel of these faceted briolettes paired with gleaming silver chain. The design is a breeze and the effect is sweetly eye-catching. I might just have to wear this springtime strand all year long!

Step 2
Cut two 6–7 in. (15–18 cm) pieces of chain. On each end of the beaded strand, string a crimp bead, a bicone, a Wire Guardian, and an end link of a chain. Go back through the last few beads strung and tighten the wire. Crimp the crimp bead and trim the excess wire.

Step 3
Check the fit and trim chain from each end if necessary. Open a jump ring. On one end, attach the chain and a lobster claw clasp. Close the jump ring.
Tip!
These beads are pear-shaped chrysoprase, but any large briolette will work well with this design.
