Designing out-of-the-box can be a challenge, but it's very satisfying when you find the right combination. Our Cosmic Deco Necklace Kit combines the amazing sparkle of Swarovski crystal, inexpensive seed beads and the durability of leather. When you put all of these materials together you have an eye-catching piece reminiscent of the Art Deco era.

step 1 Thread your needle so you have double thread. String twenty-five seed beads on to the thread. To connect the the first square to the cosmic ring form a circle of seed beads. Tie the two ends of thread together. Run each end of thread through a few seed beads. Snip the thread ends. You have just made your first connecting ring. Repeat this step to connect the next three squares.
