About this design:

Still trying to get this design just right! This one is with a Swarovski Cosmic Circle in Bermuda Blue and I switched out the lobster clasp and extender for a magnetic clasp.

Components:

Swarovski Cosmic Circle 20mm, 4mm Swarovski bicones, #15 seed beads, silver magnetic clasp and cones

    Wow, very beautiful!!! It looks like it was very labor intense, using all those seed beads, but you did an amazing job, and of course the color is blue….my favorite!!

    Wow this is great! I love it! What did you use to string and what size? I would have to invest in some very lightweight beading wire to make something like that. Very pretty and thanks for sharing!

    Thanks everyone! Diane, I used 6 lb Fireline in crystal. It is very fine and flexible so the pieces drape very nicely.

    Thanks everyone! I think there are 8 bridesmaids (Maid of Honor, 6 Bride’s Maids, 1 Jr. Bride’s Maid) in the wedding party! Let’s see there are about 2700 seed beads per necklace times 8 necklaces comes to about 21,600 counted seed beads not counting the bicones!!! Think I’m cross-eyed now wait till I’m done with all 8 sets! LOL
