DIY bridal jewellery: lariat necklace

Got home to find my pearls had arrived! So, after dinner i got to making the lariat necklace. I'd already made the tassels, so it was just a matter of stringing the pearls and crystals onto the tiger tail until i got the right length, then attaching the tassels to finish.

I needed 19 sections; each eight rice pearls and one Swarovski crystal per section, to complete the lariat. Finished, it measures 110cm long.

I used: 152 rice pearls
20 4mm Swarovski crystals in Clear
8 6mm Swarovski crystals in Clear
8 6mm Swarovski pearls in Light Cream Rose
32 seed beads
16 head pins
10cm heart chain
100cm pearl Tiger Tail
2 crimps
