Spiral Sparkle

by: Cynthia Fawcett

This month's celebrity designer challenge involved the Swarovski Square stone, a few matching crystals and a beautifully coordinated ColourFX mix. Much to our surprise - Cynthia didn't use the "mix" beads randomly!


The necklace is a "spiral rope" and the "chicken feet" ends are made using herringbone or Ndebele stitch.  Smaller crystals were used to embellish both the ends of the chicken feet and just above where the piece joins with the spiral rope.
 
The drop embellishment hanging off the Sw. square was a free form design, making use of the larger crystals.
 
The clasp uses the Sw. square as one side of the toggle and the bar half was made using a head pin and an eye pin.
