I used a blend for this design, which made the color palette work up quickly. If you find that the pearl holes are a little small, use a beading awl to enlarge them.

Small and playful Swarovski pearls create an elegant shimmer in the layers of leather in this necklace. The perfect mix of colors is provided by an Artbeads Designer Blend, while silvery accents bring just the right amount of gleam. The color and shine in this necklace will have you dreaming of glistening dewdrops clinging to forest trails. Learn how to make it and add Dancing Dewdrops to your style!
