Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Release your inner Earth goddess with this frosty forest dream! The temperate blues and greens eclipsed by a glowing golden Swarovski pendant is the ideal reflection of organic elegance.

Step two:
String an alternating pattern with eighteen Swarovski 6mm Petrol round pearls and seventeen Miyuki 11/0 metallic AB matte dark green/teal Delica seed beads, beginning and ending with pearls.

Step three:
String the following pattern onto the wire twice:
  • one TierraCast copper antique small Turkish hieshi spacer
  • three Unicorne Beads forest mix boro glass teardrops
  • one spacer
  • one mint green nugget freshwater pearl
  • one Delica
  • one mint green pearl

  • one mint green pearl
Step four:
Add one spacer, two teardrops, one spacer, one mint green pearl, one Delica, one mint green pearl, one Delica and one mint green pearl.

Step five:
String the pattern from Step three once then add one spacer and three teardrops.

Step six:
Add the Swarovski 45mm lily pendant in Crystal Golden Shadow and then create a mirror image on the other side.

Step seven:
Finish the open end with a second jump ring and crimp tube.

Step eight:
Attach the loop portion of the JBB antique vintage brass-plated pewter 3 petal leaf toggle clasp to one jump ring and the bar portion of the clasp to the other. Watch our Handy Tip Video if you need need help with jump rings.
