DIY Jewellery with brushed pendants

Created on

smykker med børstede vedhæng

Jewelry parts with a slightly brushed and rustic surface are very modern, and are a good match for timeless jewelry design. In this entry we present a series of new and simple designs for necklaces as well as earrings, which you can create with jewelry parts from Smyks.com and for a very small price.

Earrings with teardrop and little ball.

For these earrings you’ll need the following materials:

1 pair of gilded sterling silver earwires
2pcs. gilded teardrops (or 2pcs. silver coated teardrops)
2pcs. 3mm gilded beads
2pcs. gilded headpins with 2mm ball

Feed the headpin through the teardrop and attach the beads before creating an eye. Because the teardrop is so big, there won’t be a lot of headpin left for the eye, but it should be able to make just one twist. Next, carefully open the eye of the earwires, attach the teardrop, then close it again. Your earrings are now finished.

Gilded necklace with teardrop and pearl.

For this necklace you’ll need the following materials:

1pc. gilded teardrop
1pc. gilded headpin with 2mm ball
1pc. approx. 3mm pearl
80 cm. gilded brass ball chain

First feed the headpin through the teardrop and the pearl before you make the eye. Because of the size of the teardrop, there’s not much space left to make an eye, but just enough for one twist. Next pull the ball chain through the eye of the pendant. Remember to make sure your eye is big enough for the chain to go through. When purchasing the ball chain, a connector bead is included.

Necklace with gunmetal teardrop.

For this necklace you’ll need the following materials:

1pc. gunmetal teardrop
1pc. black headpin with a 2mm plate 
1pc. 3mm gilded bead
Approx. 80cm. 1.2mm faceted black steel ball chain

Use the same method as the one described above to create this necklace.

Necklace with 2 gilded teardrops.

For this necklace you’ll need the following materials:

2pcs. gilded teardrops

3pcs. 3mm gilded beads
approx. 20cm. 0.5mm gilded cobber wire
approx. 50cm 0.5mm gilded cable chain
3pcs. 4mm jumprings 
1pc 5mm jumpring 
1pc. gilded silver lobster claw clasp

Start out by creating an eye in the one end of the wire. Next add beads and teardrops in the following order: bead/teardrop/bead/teardrop/bead, then make a bead in the other end of the wire. Bend the wire so the teardrops create a V-shape. You use 2pcs. 4mm jumprings to attach the chain to the eyes of the wire. Install the lobster claw clasp by using a 4mm jumpring in one end of the chain, and a 5mm jumpring in the other. Additionally, you can add a chain extension, so you have the possibility of adjusting the length of the necklace.
