These sparkling, shimmering beads are beautiful and easy to use. This doesn't really count as a tutorial... really I just bought one of each color and strung them on a sleek black choker. I can trade them out whenever I want to wear just a single color... or 2, or 3. No tools or extra parts required. But I've linked alternate supplies below in case you'd like to create a custom length.

Designer Tips

  • Simply string beads onto choker in desired pattern. The only color not used on this choker is the scarlet (it wasn't in stock yet).
  • For a bracelet or custom-length necklace, use the optional supplies listed at the bottom of this project.
  • The large 5.2mm hole in these shimmering, sparkling briolette beads fits almost any cord, Pandora chain, etc.
  • Sadly, Swarovski has exited the DIY market, so most of their beads are no longer available.
