The Aurora Borealis (AB) finish on a Swarovski crystal starfish component is intense, so I decided to keep the design of this necklace on the simple side and let the sparkle do all the work. Also see the Swarovski Crystal Intense Sparkle Starfish Earrings tutorial to make a pair of matching earrings.

To make this necklace, you will need the following:

1 – 20mm AB clear Swarovski starfish pendant
1 – 5mm sterling jump ring
16 inches of Figaro sterling chain
1 – 6mm AB clear Swarovski bicone bead
2 – 3.5x1mm Bali sterling silver star beads
1 foot of 21-gauge Sterling wire
Wire cutters
Chain-nosed pliers
Round-nosed pliers
Nylon-nosed pliers
Jeweler’s file

*Crystal starfish component (#06-721-20-02) and sterling silver star beads (24-731-728) came from Rings & Things.
