Lanyard de Fleurs

by Kimberly Gladen

This DIY necklace kit stars a Fleur de Lis Mirage bead, hammered TierraCast circle link and Fleur de Lis charm. Hints of floral color are glimpsed in the Mirage hot pink barrel and Rosy Posy beads as they continuously change color. Swarovski crystals add purple and green sparkle, even in the back at the clasp. You'll get lots of wire-twisting practice with this project and string all of these floral-themed components together on plenty of pretty silver-plated cable chain.

The finished lanyard measures up to 28 inches.
