Embellished Shell Necklace
We all do it, don’t we? We always come home from the beach with a pocket full of shells, sea glass, sand, and lots more! This necklace is created using a large intact shell. It’s a simple and quick make, and if you don’t have a necklace base to use, you could thread it onto a chain or piece of ribbon.
This project was created by our Jewellery Ambassador, Sarah Millsop.
You Will Need:
- Large Shell
- Necklace Hoop/Wire
- Jump Rings
- Ribbon End/Cord End Cap
- Jewellery Pliers
- Glue Gel
You will need to flatten a ribbon end or cord end using your jewellery pliers.
Make sure you can position it on the shell with enough space to attach your jump rings or a cord. You may wish to bend the ribbon end and slightly curve the inside to fit around the shell shape.
I have had to create a ‘glue wall’ so that the end is fixed to enough of a surface area to secure it. It doesn’t look great from the inside… but if you’re gifting or selling, you could cover this with felt.
Attach 2 jump rings and thread on to your necklace hoop, thread, or chain.
