WWD MAGIC DIY Lounge With Swarovski Elements

Last week I spent a little quality time at the Las Vegas Convention Center hosting the Swarovski Elements DIY lounge at the WWD MAGIC Tradeshow. I had a BLAST! I mean Vegas is always a good time, but throw in some crystals from Swarovski Elements and it’s almost too much fun for one girl to handle.

The tradeshow lasted 3 full days and everyday we DIYed a different Swarovski Elements embellished project. One day we made bracelets, then necklaces and finally earrings.

We all know how I love all things that go bling, but I’m currently beyond obsessed with the latest and greatest products from Swarovski Elements. Their neon crystal pearls are to die for. Seriously the colors are so vibrant and the matte finish just adds to their fabulosity. They’re available in craft stores now.  You must run (…or sit at your computer and order from there internet here) and pick up a package. Have any of you played with the pearls yet? I know a few of you tweeted me that you are also obsessing.

At the lounge we made these quick and easy necklaces with the pearls. I’m loving my new neon necklace!! Not only is it on trend with the neon, but it also makes the perfect gift for all the Moms, MiMas, Aunties and Best Friends out there.

There was lots of fun going on inside the Swarovski Elements DIY lounge.

Making this necklace is beyond easy. Click the link for more details…

Materials: Neon Crystal Pearls from Swarovski Elements (purchase here), Chain, Wire, Metal Beads (if you wish)

Cut a piece of wire about a foot in length and slide one end through the last link on your chain. Wrap the smaller piece of wire around the longer piece. Wrap the wire around about 4 to 5 times to secure then use a pair of nippers to cut off any access.

Then, simply start stinging on beads in your desired pattern. Your pattern is entirely up to you. have fun with it! The pearls come in neon pink, yellow and orange. You can use gold or silver chain. The possibilities are endless!!!!

Thanks Vegas for a week of fun! I met so make wonderful, creative and crafty people. I enjoyed my time in the lounge so much so that I took home one of the signs. LOL Don’t laugh… it’s like taking home the centerpiece after the wedding reception.  Oh the memories.
