natural stone slab collar necklaces

Create an elegant collar necklace featuring your favorite natural stone.
Step 1
Divide the large chain into two 4¼" pieces and use the open link to attach the clasp. 
Step 2
Connect the large jump ring to the other chain. 
Step 3
Lay out 8½" of slab points so that they are arranged with the largest points in the middle and the smallest points on the ends. 
Step 4
Onto the piece of flexible beading wire string one crimp tube followed by one gold round. String one bumpy spacer and one white point as laid out so that the points in the center of the necklace are longer. Repeat, stringing remaining white points and bumpy spacers. Finish by stringing one bumpy spacer, one 3 mm round and one crimp tube. 
Step 5
Pass one end of the wire through the first link of the chain from Step 1. Pass it back through the crimp tube and crimp. Repeat with the other end of the beading wire, passing through the first link of the chain from Step 2. 
 
Tip: Lay out the slab points in size order to organize them so that they are easy to string.
