Sparkling Flower Necklace
Swarovski crystals never seem to lose their sparkle. I bought the flower designs used in this necklace several years ago. They still look as great as they did back then. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find this exact shade of blue anywhere recently. But I did find the same flower design available in several colors at the Beadlady web page. To purchase, send her an email as directed at the top of her page. If crystals aren’t your thing, substitute the Swarovski beads with any of your favorite metal beads. They should be one half-inch wide in order for them to work with the dimensions called out in this tutorial. Flattened silver wire and round wire coil connectors mesh to add a special esthetic to this project. Coils are created simply by wrapping wire around knitting needles. Attach the chain of your choice to the coils and you’re ready to step out with your gorgeous new necklace.
step 12 - Connect the appropriate length of chain to each of the two remaining open coils and close them as in step eight.
step 13 - Attach jump rings to the chain ends and attach a clasp.
