Swarovski necklace and bracelet

While I really like to make silver Chain Maille, using beautiful Swarovski crystals is also fun. When I found the two hole Swarovski/marquisette components I had a challenge to use them together. Oh, the choices! This is my take on using two sizes of jet Swarovski crystals and the butterfly component.

The components are available in many different patterns but this is the one I like the best.

Next, of course, came a matching bracelet. Well, I did make an all jet bracelet, but I thought I'd show a jet and garnet. It is not easy to see the two colors in the picture.

Actually, the color combinations are many. I also like the blue sapphire color too. Emerald is good too.

Which color do you prefer?



  1. I like all the colors of Swarovski crystals. It is amazing how different the pieces can look when you change the color or the bead pattern. Your creations are lovely.

  2. Just took my first plunge into Swarovski crystals. Can't beat that sparkle! I made a simple crystal and pearl necklace and, of course, with blue crystals. I think, they're light sapphire, but don't know exactly, as I got them from a bead swap. But I love the outcome and have some jet crystals for another piece. But blue is definitely my favorite crystal color.

  3. They're both beautiful but I am partial to blue and like that one best. So clean and simple but so elegant. I love them.

  4. I love the necklace design and how it weaves in and out of the connectors. My vote is for the black - it's gorgeous!

  5. I especially like the necklaces because I might have conceived of something similar in a bracelet - but I know I wouldn't have come up with the necklaces! So pretty!
