This necklace has a variety of Swarovski gold & cream pearls, siam and topaz crystals and a vintage pendant. I attached the wire to the pendant, then added a pearl and started twisting the wire. I did that for each pearl. When I got to the length I wanted, I started wrapping the wire around the beads going back down to the pendant for extra hold. I added siam crystals to give the necklace a little pop.
