It's so much fun pairing the brilliant sparkle of Swarovski with darker elements, like the satin cord and gunmetal components I used in this jewelry set.
Bring sparkle to any look with Swarovski Rivoli rhinestones. With compatible Rivoli frame charms and links from TierraCast, it's easy to add their beautiful glitter to your jewelry designs. You can discover more inspiration for using Rivolis in your projects in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
For the necklace, glue a Swarovski SS47 Rivoli in Denim Blue into the TierraCast 11mm brass oxide pewter Rivoli frame charm. Allow to dry. Repeat for the other Denim Blue Rivoli and the Swarovski SS47 Rivoli in Crystal AB.
Cut a length of 1mm gunmetal-plated brass diamond cut ball chain approximately 25 inches long. Slide six TierraCast 4mm black finish pewter plain Heishi spacers onto the chain. Attach a gunmetal-plated brass ball chain connector to the ends of the chain.
Attach a Denim Blue Rivoli charm to one side of the spacers using a 4mm 21 gauge matte black-plated open jump ring. Attach the Crystal AB Rivoli charm between the six spacers using a jump ring. Place the other Denim Blue Rivoli charm at the end of the spacers using a jump ring.
For the bracelet, glue a Swarovski 14mm Rivoli in Crystal Antique Pink into the TierraCast 14mm rhodium-plated pewter Rivoli frame link. Allow to dry.
Cut a length of 2mm black satin cord approximately six inches long. It's better to leave this length longer, as you can always trim it before adding the clasp. Fold the cord in half around one loop on the Rivoli link and tie a knot in the cord just below the link loop. Repeat this step on the other side of the Rivoli link.
Trim the ends of your cords if needed to make your bracelet the desired length, keeping in mind the clasp adds about one inch of length. Glue the two ends of cord at one end of your bracelet into half of the 3mm silver-plated pewter plain Glu-N-Go lobster clasp set and allow to dry. Repeat for the other end of the bracelet.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up

scheme—it’s up to you!
