Moonlight Sonata

by: Jennifer Tough

A gift for a beloved countess - or for yourself. Marg sent me a little goodie bag with a couple strands of labradorite, and the new, super fantabulous Silver Night Swarovski's. I can't say enough about these crystals - absolutely stunning. Grey, yes - but they sparkle like black diamonds.

The set sparkles like crazy in the sunlight. I wore the bracelet out to pick up my kids from school. Every time I lifted my wrist, the flash of sparkle from the Swarovski briolette was brilliant!

To recreate this, you'll need to improvise somewhat, as  I added my own handmade fused fine silver rings. The clasps used on the bracelet and necklace were from my own stash. I'm not sure if the store still stocks them.

Each bead is securely wire-wrapped in place, so there is no risk of jump rings opening.

The texture on the fine silver rings (which you may not be able to see from the picture) were created with our newish texture hammers that we have in the store.
