This beaded necklace is seductively luxurious, wickedly rich. Made entirely with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS, it celebrates the silken joys of upcoming nuptials in the rich cream and soft flows.
This is a fully crocheted necklace (my first attempt). I have used Swarovski silk threads which offer strength and flexibility. It features about 1,000 Swarovski pearls and crystal beads. The colors are warm, luxurious, rich, and blissful.
Swarovski pearls are perfectly round with a flawless surface, and design to have identical weight as real pearls. And like real pearls, it also captures the wearer's body temperature giving it that intimate, luxuriously rich feeling.
This Swarovski bead crochet necklace - in a full lariat style, can be easily taken on and off by just looping over the head. This makes it easier than threading the tassels into the loop-clasp each time.
Preparation - showing the Swarovski beads and pearls, strung up in the sequence desired, before crochet can commence. Don't they look delicious as is already?

The Crystal Beads are 4mm Swarovski Golden Shadow and Silk AB.
The Golden Shadow and the Silk AB are a perfect blending combination - they virtually merge into each other, creating a smooth transition and adding indecipherable depth, hue, and tone to the crochet beaded necklace.

The next photo shows the tussle end from another angle. At the very tip of the coupled Swarovski Modular Beads is a 2.5mm bicone Crystal.
The third and fourth photos in this section are just a random shots of the tassels/fringes of this Bridal Silk crochet beaded necklace. You can see why the tassels are so important. Their luscious beauty is quite evident and they will form an indispensable part of the sparkle and gaiety of the piece as they provide scintillating swinging with natural body movements.
Now, let's take a close look at the beaded loop-clash.
The loop-clasp is worked in tigertail. The loop is expected to take more stress than other areas of the beaded necklace and so the tigertail provides the strength needed.
I used 3mm Swarovski pearls (a combination of White, Creamrose, and Platinum Swarovski Crystal Pearls). The large focus bead is Swarovski Platinum Crystal Pearl, which is sandwiched between crystal rondelles.
