DIY Sea Glass Necklaces On The Tenth

Welcome to 10 on the Tenth, a happy place where you might just find something to bake, make, take or purchase.
A group of us have gathered together to bring you the best of what we found this month and the nifty thing is-it's all under $10!

A few weeks ago I shared with you the relocation of our middle daughter and her family. They recently moved to Puerto Rico. This sweet girl sent me some gorgeous tumbled sea glass that she collected herself.
Well, when you receive such a fantastic gift as this you have some decisions to make.
One is how to showcase these treasures from the sea and two how to share the goodness with some sweet girlfriends.

The decision was quickly made to have a morning jewelry making class.
Supplies were assembled, a few jewelry making basic were purchased at Hobby Lobby and the rest was basically all collected from what we had in our homes.
I made a batch of my Holiday Cinnamon Rolls and a big pot of coffee and we went to work.
All crafty girls need food and coffee...


They will vary depending on your choice of materials.
To Keep Cost Under $10.00 plan ahead on the style of jewelry you will be making.

  • 1. Florist wire cutters 
  • 2. Flat nose pliers
  • 3. Scissors
  • 4. Floral Wire
  • 5. Copper Wire
  • 6. Artistic Wire
  • 7. Cord
  • 8. Leather cord
  • 9. Beads 
  • 10. Lobster clasp or springring clasp
  • 11. Chain
  • 12. Charms
  • 13. Sea Glass
  • 14. Paper
  • 15. Pencil

Deciding on the design of the necklace was the most difficult step for me.
I searched for all sorts of images and then I ended up drawing a simple design on some computer paper.
We all watched a you-tube video or two for some extra instruction and after a short tutorial we all felt pretty comfortable proceeding.
Jewelry making is very relaxing and enjoyable.


  • 1. Design your jewelry using paper and a pencil.
  • 2. Experiment with different designs and placement of sea glass or beads before cutting your wire or cording.
  • 3. Once you have decided upon a design decided the length of your necklace.
  • 4. Cut the cord to the desired length
  • 5. Decide on how much wire you will be using for each bead or sea glass before cutting the length.
  • 6. Cut wire and begin wrapping the sea glass.
  • 7. Add small beads etc... to the wire as you are wrapping the sea glass
  • 8. After wrapping the sea glass attach the sea glass to the cording of the necklace.
  • 9. Attach clasp.
  • 10. Wear necklace.


And there you have it, your own fashionable diy sea glass jewelry. 

Sort of looks like they came right out of a Sundance Catalog!


Have a beautiful weekend!!
