Champagne À la Mode Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Elegance abounds in this shining example of true sophistication. It's simple to create, yet stands out as a stunning testament to timeless style. This pearl choker offers just a hint of sparkle and shine thanks to the crystal roundelles and the shining gold clasp. Wear it for bridal occasions, formal nights out and more.

Step one:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 20 to 22 inches long. Follow the instructions in the Alacarte Magnetic Clasp Handy Tip to attach one half of the Alacarte gold-plated Glue-It-Yourself scallop barrel magnetic clasp to the jewelry wire. Use a Swarovski 10mm Cream round pearl to glue to the inside end of the clasp.

Step two:
Add another 10mm Cream pearl to the strand and string the following pattern onto the jewelry wire:
  • One Swarovski 8mm Crystal faceted roundelle
  • Three 10mm Cream pearls
Repeat this pattern four times, then string on a roundelle and one 10mm Cream pearl. Make a mirror image of the bead pattern on the other side of the last pearl added.

Step three:
Add the other half of the clasp to the end of the strand in the same manner laid out in the above Handy Tip.
