I really wanted to use the bead caps in this necklace, but they seemed to swallow up just one bead. I stacked three beads between each pair of bead caps for a fun look. Don't be afraid to experiment with bead caps in your designs.

Silk ribbon creates a gorgeous finishing touch on this necklace. Czech glass flowers and rounds take center stage, while sweet pink Swarovski pearls and bold bead caps provide a wonderful accent to the bead pattern. Tie the ribbon at any point to adjust the length of this look. Learn more about Raven's Journey Czech glass beads and see other fun jewelry featuring Czech glass in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
