March Aquamarine

by: Jennifer Tough

One of the birthstones for March is Aquamarine (along with the more traditional bloodstone (heliotrope) and Jasper.

Since actual aquamarines are a little on the pricey side - ha! I've used these really pretty aqua goldish hue'd Toho 8/0 seeds. If you can get your hands on some small aquamarine chips with large enough holes - you could also do this project with them. I think it would be stunning!

To start the project:

- Open up a bunch of jump rings, and slide on a single seedbead onto each one.

- Close the first beaded jump ring, and then attach the next one. Close the ring, and keep on until you have reached your desired length.

- Go back to the beginning and attach a beaded jump ring onto each of the jump rings on the long length of chain you just made. Let them drop from either the top or the bottom of the chain.

- Using 2 more jump rings, attach 1 side of the toggle to each end of your new chain.
