Our Floating Gemstones Necklaces celebrate earth's creations, delving into the beauty of topaz and opals, carnelians and moonstones, pearls and more. Simply braided onto a pretty silk cord, semi-precious stones seem to levitate like morning dewdrops on autumn spider webs. Our Floating Gemstones Necklace Pattern walks you through the steps of creating these ephemeral beauties, from threading and spacing the beads to creating a braided loop closure. Use an Assortment Of Gemstone Beads plus Purely Silk's Silk Beading Thread to create your own. View Product Details, below, for more information.
