I love the way Swarovski's Shimmer effect dances across the crystal. I used three Shimmer crystals in this necklace. For a fun twist, I used bead caps on the bottom of the bicones instead of the top.
Cynthia decorated a delicate leather necklace with Swarovski crystals featuring the Shimmer effect for a dainty yet dazzling look. The crystals dangle from a cute crescent, creating a twinkling style full of movement. You can see how Cynthia made this necklace and find even more inspiration for using Swarovski crystal in your designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Slide a TierraCast antique silver 5mm Tiffany bead cap onto a 2-inch sterling silver 24 gauge head pin, followed by a Swarovski 5mm bicone in Light Sapphire Shimmer. Make a wrapped loop at the top of the beads. Repeat for a total of two dangles.
Attach the Swarovski 16mm pear-shaped pendant in Light Sapphire Shimmer to the center loop on the B&B Benbassat antique silver-plated brass cut-out crescent pendant using a sterling silver 6.10mm open jump ring. Attach a bicone dangle to each loop on both sides of the pear-shaped pendant using a jump ring for each.
Cut a length of 1.5mm natural black round leather approximately 18 inches long. Attach the crescent pendant to the center of the leather using a jump ring at each loop at the top of the crescent. Add a JBB 2mm antique sterling silver fancy crimp end cap with loop to each end of the leather and crimp in place. Attach the TierraCast 1/2-inch antique silver-plated pewter Anna's toggle and clasp to each end of the necklace using a jump ring for each.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
