Learn how to make this Swarovski Midnight Elegance Necklace using black Swarovski glass pearl bead mix and Swarovski crystal bow in crystal silver night.

Step 1

Cut three strands of wire measuring 7", 8.5" and 10". 

Step 2

Thread a crimp bead onto one end of each strand; thread the wires through one hole of one of your Swarovski bow beads and back through the crimp bead. Flatten the crimp bead onto the wires to secure. 

Step 3

Creating the shortest pearl strand. 
Start by threading approx 23 beads onto the 7" length of wire.
Thread the beads on in tone and size order so the largest beads are at the centre.
Only use up to 10mm size beads for the shortest strand.

Step 4

For the centre strand, thread approx. 27 beads onto the 8.5” length of wire in size order so the largest 12mm pearls are in the centre. 

Step 5

For the outer strand, thread approx. 31 beads onto a 10” length of wire in size order so the largest 14mm beads are in the centre of the strand. (see image) 

Step 6

End each of these strands the same way as in step 2 by threading a crimp bead on close to the final small bead, threading the wire through a second Swarovski bow bead and back through the crimp bead. Flatten the crimp bead to secure and trim any excess wire. 

Step 7

Cut two more strands of wire measuring 8" or however long you want your necklace to be.

Step 8

Repeat step 2 and attach the two wires to each of the bow beads using crimp beads.
Try hanging the necklace around your neck to see how long it looks or if you need to trim and shorten your wires.

Step 9

Thread on 6mm beads getting smaller (5mm, 4mm, 3mm) towards the end of your strands. 

Step 10

Attach one wire to a jumpring using another crimp bead and trim any excess wire.

Step 11

Attach the other end of wire to a lobster clasp using a crimp bead. Make sure there isn't too much of a gap between the crimp bead and the Swarovski pearls but enough to allow for movement.
