Antique Glamor Necklace and Ring Tutorials featuring Swarovski Elements

By on Saturday, December 10, 2011 4 Comments

I received these wonderful free tutorials from one of my wholesale suppliers.  No matter what the title says, I think the designs are worthy of other times of the year too, not just Christmas!

The bib style necklace makes use of different types of Swarovski crystals - the eye-catching round stones as well as pendant drops, crystal pearls and bicones.

The necklace tutorial is also notable for it's use of gathered ribbon to frame 4 of the flowers.  I also liked the easy way leather and beads are used to encase the fifth "flower".  Beats having to do a full beaded cabochon technique!

This same leather technique is carried over in the ring tutorial.

    I'm telling myself that I won't go to the Create Your Style website and look at tutorials, but given my love of sparkly things, I think we both know how that's going to turn out. ;)
