Swarovski Wrap-ture

Using nothing but Swarovski beads in jewellery pieces makes for some spectacular bling, but it doesn't always need to be huge or really bright bling … particularly if you incorporate the lustre of their fabulous pearls!  I was very excited to see coin pearls introduced into the line and the new Blackberry colour is my absolute favourite. 

This particular project is an exercise in wire wrapping – thus the name - Swarovski Wrap-ture.  Great way to use smaller quantities of crystals remaining from other projects and mixing colors together too.

Create your dangles – no more than 2 crystals per headpin to keep the clusters close – then add the dangles to each loop as you wire wrap your coin pearls together.  Fun and flirty … and, of course, you’ll want earrings to coordinate!

Have fun!
