Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This necklace mixes golden hues with deep blue to make a wonderful reflection of the midnight sky. Click here for matching earrings.

Step one: Cut a length of Soft Touch jewelry wire to approximately 25 inches. Crimp one end of the wire to the bar end of the gold filled toggle clasp using 2x2mm gold-filled crimp tubes. For instructions on how to crimp, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Cover with a crimp cover.

Step two: String a dark blue lentil shaped cat's eye bead followed by a Swarovski 4mm gold pearl, a light blue freshwater pearl and another gold pearl. Repeat this pattern 10 times. Add one more dark blue lentil and a 5mm gold Swarovski pearl. String a 16mm Swarovski crystal golden shadow cosmic bead followed by a gold pearl, dark blue lentil and gold pearl. Add another cosmic bead and then reverse the pattern as you work toward the other end of the necklace. Crimp the remaining wire to the other side of the clasp. Trim the excess wire and cover with a crimp cover.
