This red velvet ribbon is so decadent. It doesn't take much embellishment to create something spectacular! Just a few touches of Swarovski's Scarlet crystals are all it needed.
Soft and luxurious red velvet ribbon is a wonderful companion for Swarovski's Scarlet color. Both are rich and ravishing The velvet ribbon makes an excellent choker because it is soft and comfortable to wear. You'll love donning this necklace for Christmas parties, Valentine's Day celebrations, and more. You can see more ideas featuring fun Swarovski pieces in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Slide a Swarovski 4mm bicone in Scarlet onto a 1 1/2-inch 24 gauge sterling silver head pin and make a wrapped loop at the top of the bead. Attach this dangle to the other ribbon end crimp using 12 jump rings linked together. Hook the trigger clasp from your other ribbon end crimp to the seventh jump ring in this chain.
Determine how much burgundy 3/8-inch velvet ribbon will be needed to make a choker that will fit properly with the clasp attached. Cut your ribbon to size.
Apply adhesive to the ends of the ribbon and allow to dry. Trim the ends if necessary so that any adhesive that may have bled into the velvet will not show once the ribbon ends are on. Fold each ribbon end crimp down on each end of ribbon using chain nylon jaw parallel pliers. Temporarily remove your jump rings from the ends if they get in the way of crimping the ribbon ends down.
Find the center of your necklace and stitch four bicones onto the ribbon in a diamond pattern. With your thread coming out of the bottom bicone in the design, add a Swarovski 11x5.5mm briolette pendant in Scarlet and then bring your thread back up through the bicone. Stitch onto the velvet and then go back through the bicone and the drop to reinforce.
