Nothing says bling like a beaded necklace made with Swarovski crystals. Take this Swarovski Crystal beaded necklace with removable Gothic Pendant made in the Wave style using 4mm Ruby Swarovski crystals and Metallic Dark Black Gunmetal Japanese seed beads. It's elegance is very eye-catching. It sparkles when you move and the pendant will slide over the necklace to give it that extra zing. This Swarovski necklace will be an ideal addition to your wardrobe.
With the chain extension and a dangle on the end, this necklace will go from 20 inches to 22 inches (50.8cm to 55.9cm).
I learned the technique for the necklace from a pattern from Joanne's Jewellery (www.bead-patterns.com) that she called Gondolas. Joanne Eby passed away September 19, 2005 from Liver Cancer but her patterns are still being sold. All sales of these patterns go to cancer research.
I fell in love with the gothic pendant design when I first saw it on Ruby's Beadwork (http://www.rubysbeadwork.com/Thumbnails.html) site. I just had to make it. I was on a ruby and black creation spree so continued. I already had the earrings, necklace and bracelet so needed a pendant to match.
