Swarovski Shimmer Necklaces in Green and Yellow Tones
designed byCynthia Kimura
TechniqueSwarovski Crystal Rhinestones
Approximate Size18-20 Inches
When I wear these necklaces, I feel like a forest princess! I even like to layer these necklaces together.
Stunning style comes alive thanks to Swarovski beads in the dazzling Shimmer effect. They match the pendants of each necklace beautifully. Cynthia also mixed in Czech glass in rich green and warm yellow colors. You can watch Cynthia make this set and other jewelry pieces in this Facebook Live Design Challenge video.
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 23 inches long. Slide a TierraCast 2x2mm brass oxide brass crimp tube onto the end of the wire, followed by a 5.5mm antique brass-plated 21 gauge open jump ring attached to half of the TierraCast ¾-inch brass oxide pewter Anna's toggle and clasp. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.

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!
