designed by Cheri Carlson
Skill LevelIntermediate
TechniqueChain & Jump Rings
Time1-3 hours

The color of this velvet ribbon has a minty look to it. It's a great match with Swarovski's Erinite Shimmer crystals. I added a Vintaj filigree painted with Patina for more detail.

This choker is a dreamy piece filled with lush details, from the refreshing sea spray touch of the velvet ribbon to the twinkling Swarovski crystals in Erinite Shimmer and the intricacy of the Vintaj filigree embellishment. It will put you in mind of a magical isle shrouded in mist. You can see more ideas featuring fun Swarovski pieces in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
