Autumn Inspiration – Swarovski Crystal Y Necklace

Inspired by the colors and tones of Autumn, this stunning necklace features a center dangle of genuine Swarovski Crystal and a sterling silver Figaro chain.

Autumn Inspiration Swarovski Crystal Y Necklace Sterling Silver Figaro Chain


I’ve used 18 genuine Swarovski crystals in a rich, Fall inspired gradient of color as the centerpiece of this necklace. The piece is a traditional “Y” shape with sterling silver plated Figaro chain, a large round circle and then a cascade of crystal down the center.

It just sparkles and shines and catches the light like mad. The crystal ranges in color from a pale yellow, into tones of grey, light amber, through a rich rusted orange and finishing in a topaz brown.

The chain itself is approximately 18″ while the center dangle is just shy of 2″ long. The necklace is finished with a lobster claw clasp.

Handpainted Mario Denim Overalls For A Little Girl

And now for something completely different! Most everyone knows me for my jewelry because well, it’s kinda mostly what I do. 😉 But I really wanted to do something different so I tried my hands at this. These were made for a swap on Craftster.

The Details
Bought a pair of jean overalls. I pre-washed them (Tide Free & Clear and no fabric softener) just to be sure I had a good starting surface.

I printed up some pictures of Mario and Mario Characters to use as a reference. I free-handed the images on the denim with a fabric pencil.

When I had it as I liked, I outlined each drawing in black Sharpee.

Then I got to painting. I used acrylic paint in many, thick coats to get a good, solid color. Took a lot of touch-up and a lot of patience. Probably spent about 4-5 hours on the project but I did it on the couch in the evening watching TV so it wasn’t hard – just exacting.

Let it dry overnight and then I finished it with a few layers of spray-on ScotchGuard just over the images themselves. The acrylic paint is pretty permanent on most fabrics but this should help it stand up to being worn by a little girl a little more.
