Pearl Cocktail

by: Kelly Garland

Swarovski pearls are stunning components to work with, creating stunning pieces that really kick it up a notch. I'm rather fond of the silver and grey metallic pearls which work really well with any number of sterling silver clasps BeadFX carries, but choose what works for you. The total cost is a bit more than what you might spend on other beaded jewellery, but you'll create a high end beautiful piece that works for formal engagements, weddings and any other swanky event.

1) Cut desired length of wire, adding  an extra inch for your loops and clasp attachment. (A wee bit more if you're new to crimping) It's always better to have an extra inch of length, then having to restring the entire piece.

2) You'll need to attach one side of the clasp onto your loop before securing it with a crimp. Attach your crimp cover.

3) Start with one silver lentil and start stringing, alternating as you go along.

4) Finish off your end the same way you started!

You should keep this bracelet wrapped in something to protect the pearls against scratching. The sterling clasp component and lentils can be easily cleaned with a silver polishing cloth.
