Circle of Bling Swarovski Crystal Pendant

by Michele Rose

The focal piece for our Circle of Bling Necklace kit is the amazing Swarovski Crystal twist pendant. Because the twist pendant is so spectacular on itís own our designers thought the best way to feature this crystal in a necklace was to have it be the necklace. A leather cord, cord ends and a clasp make this kit simple to make but stunning to wear.

2 Swarovski 4mm crystal ab round beads
2 Sterling silver cord ends
1 Sterling silver 6mm springring clasp
6 inches of 24 gauge half hard sterling silver wire
20 inches of 1.5mm brown leather thong
