Crystal Summer Snow Necklace

by Michele Rose

Crystal Summer Snow is a dazzling necklace kit designed to demonstrate an excellent usage of the #6012 Swarovski Flat Briolette Pendant. Tiny seed beads space out sparkly crystals and pearls with the eye catching briolettes displayed prominently in the front. A tiny fresh water pearl swings lightly from a sterling silver extender chain in the back, making this necklace adjustable from 18 to 20.5 inches.

34 Swarovski crystal 4mm bicones
39 Semi-round freshwater pearls
80 size 11 Toho seed beads

2 inches of Cable Style Round Link Chain
2 2 X 2mm Sterling Silver Crimps
