Crystal Pearl Fall Medley Necklace

by Michele Rose

When these freshwater pearls arrived we knew they would be perfect for a fall necklace due to the beautiful fall colors mixed in these strands. Combined with 3mm 5301 Swarovski Crystals; this necklace works great with everything from jeans to elegant fall dresses and includes enough beads for a 24 inch necklace. If you make a 16 to 18 inch necklace you will have leftover beads for a bracelet too. Finished length up to 24 inches.
