Crystal Dew Wedding Necklace

by Michele Rose

This lovely necklace highlights an innovative use of the Swarovski 6000 series teardrop bead. The holes are large enough for a Delicate sterling silver chain to be strung through and we have used this feature to make a Delicate scallop for the front of this necklace.

Pairing of Swarovski pearls with the new teardrop beads makes this necklace definite marriage material.
