Sometimes when it comes to jewelry, less is more. That’s the case when it comes to these adorable river rock and sterling silver charm necklaces designed by Rings & Things’ Amy Mickelson. This project is easy, yet really pretty! Plus there are a ton of different sterling silver charms to pick from!
These necklaces only require one tool and a few simple components to make! The sterling silver chain necklaces are already finished with a clasp, making them a breeze to use. Plus, I just adore the contrast between the natural river rock and the dainty sterling silver charms.
Supplies and Tools Needed:
- Chain Nose Pliers (Amy used the #69-271-99 EURO TOOL 4-piece glitter set)
- Sterling Silver Jump Rings (Amy used #37-295-460, 6mm non-tarnish)
- River Rock Pendants (Use #29-385-01)
- Sterling Silver Charms (Pictured, Flower Charm, #44-046-88 and Butterfly Charm, #44-046-90)
- Sterling Silver Necklace Chains (Pictured, Oval Curb Chain, #50-101-18-18 and Fine Curb Chain, #50-101-13-16)
Creating this necklace couldn’t be easier! Using your chain-nose pliers, pry open the jump ring a little. You only need to open it enough so that you can layer the three elements together. When opening jump rings, remember to always twist the ends in opposite directions to separate them. Do not “oval” the ring by pulling the ends apart.
Place the chain first, then the rock pendant, then your sterling silver charm onto the jump ring. Close the jump ring carefully, so that the ends line up flush.
Each finished dangle is smaller than a penny!
