We were completely inspired to create a necklace with our Swarovski crystals over the weekend.  Because we are obsessed with collars again this season, we decided to create a rhinestone collar necklace!  It was a lot of fun to create and the way it sparkles on sunny, snowy days makes us even happier!

Supplies:

2 size packs of Swarovski flatback rhinestones

1 size pack of Swarovski sew-on rhinestones

2 rhinestone buttons

1 ft. of ribbon

2 ft. of chain

Clasp

Jump ring

Gem glue

Matching thread & needle
