Drops can make all the different in a jewelry design. They take center stage in this sophisticated necklace. Cynthia made all kinds of drops using Swarovski beads and pendants. With a finishing touch of silk ribbon, this necklace makes for a fabulous display of style. You can find more inspiration for using drops in your jewelry in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
