Crystal Cascade Necklace

With an emphasis on bold contrasting colors the Crystal Cascade necklace is a true statement piece. This necklace will move and sparkle whether you're salsa dancing downtown, brunching with friends, or enjoying a date night. Linked chains of crystal bicones, rounds, Miyuki seed beads, and spacer beads create the shining cascades. Once the dangles are assembled, just link each one onto the strung portion of the necklace. Try pairing jaunty jewel tones or deeply saturated colors for a spectacular look.
