Pearl Choker







Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Spice up sophisticated designs with a bit of sparkle! Cynthia created this classic pearl choker and added Swarovski mini round beads, Swarovski rondelles and thin golden spacers. The Swarovski beads and TierraCast spacers really give the traditional look a modern flair! You can see more of this fabulous necklace in this Artbeads Cafe episode. Let this necklace inspire you to bring new sparkle to your design ideas.

Step one:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 19 inches long. Attach half of the brass heart oval lightweight toggle clasp to the end of the wire using a 14K/20 gold-filled 2x2mm crimp tube. See our Crimp Tool Handy Tip for more information on how to do this.

Step two:
String a Swarovski 6mm round pearl in White onto the wire. Then, add the following pattern:
  • Three 6mm White pearls
  • A Swarovski PP14 black mini plastic rondelle with crystals
  • Three 6mm White pearls
  • One TierraCast gold 5mm Kenyan heishi spacer
  • Swarovski 6mm mini round bead in Crystal Golden Shadow
  • One heishi spacer
Repeat this pattern six times, then string on three 6mm White pearls, a Swarovski rondelle and three more 6mm White pearls.

Step three:
Finish your necklace by attaching the other half of the toggle using a crimp.
