I love the way Swarovski's Shimmer effect dances across the crystal. I used three Shimmer crystals in this necklace. For a fun twist, I used bead caps on the bottom of the bicones instead of the top.

Cynthia decorated a delicate leather necklace with Swarovski crystals featuring the Shimmer effect for a dainty yet dazzling look. The crystals dangle from a cute crescent, creating a twinkling style full of movement. You can see how Cynthia made this necklace and find even more inspiration for using Swarovski crystal in your designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
