Aurora Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Shimmer like Aurora Borealis with this simple necklace, perfect for a formal occasion. The finish on the crystals in this necklace gives them a multicolored sparkle just like the aerial phenomenon.

Step One: Attach the Swarovski 24mm faceted teardrop pendant in Crystal Vitrail Light to the antique sterling silver dot design pinch bail. Pinch bail closed.

Step Two: Cut a 20-inch piece of purple wire from the Soft Flex Trios package in Egg Hunt. Use a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube to crimp one end of the wire to one half of the 8mm sterling silver magnetic bead clasp. For help with crimp tubes visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step Three: Thread three 12mm Swarovski cubist beads in Crystal AB, the 24mm faceted teardrop pendant from step one, and three cubist beads on the wire. Crimp the other end of the wire to the other half of the clasp using a crimp tube.
