Who doesn’t love Swarovski?!
This amazingly sparkly necklace was created in less than 10 minutes (yes!) from a Swarovski kit.
This kit was complimentary of Cousin Corporation.
Cousin Corporation is now the official distributor of Swarovski Create Your Style to the craft chains like Michaels, JoAnn Fabrics and Walmart US. Congrats Cousin!
A dark smoky pendant mixes with grey and ivory pearls – the neutral tones work great here for matching with just about any outfit you’ve got. Pair this with a silky white blouse, denim skinny jeans and black booties for seriously chic fall style!
The Create Your Style kits are awesome for beginners (has exactly what you need and comes with instructions for putting it together) and advanced beaders, who want to make something real quick.
I’m going to be using this Swarovski Create Your Style Pearled Treasure necklace kit.
I first examined my pretties…..
Then added a pearl to each headpin.
I made looped charms. With the biggest jumpring, open it and thread the large pendant on; re-close it.
There are two more jump rings. Connect them both then add one on the largest jumpring attached to the pendant; thread on all the pearls and re-close. You should have an empty jumpring at top. Thread the rattail through this.
This should mimic what you have.
(The rattail is super crimped from it being wrapped for packaging. I steamed it with a clothing steamer to make it lay flat.) The kit says to tie a knot at top, but guess what- rattail is extremely slippery, there’s no way it would hold without gluing the knot. Or, add ribbon ends and a clasp to finish.
Super simple, right?!
You’ll find a ton more Swarovski Create Your Style products at your major craft or hobby store. From other kits to pearl and crystal strands and more, there’s something for every beader!
If you aren’t feelin’ the rattail cord, try hanging this from a silver chain for a dressier look.
