Below is a very simple DIY project using Swarovski Pearls.
What you need
Swarovski Crystal Pearls

Materials Needed For Necklaces:

* Pearls sold in strands
4 feet and 1/4″ or 3/8″ thick black velvet ribbon
* Sold Separately
First twist tie the pearls together at the top to hold the necklace together temporarily.
Start in the middle of the strands (where it would lie the longest on your body) with the center of the ribbon and wrap the ribbon around the pearls. When you finish both sides tie a bow on top. You can use a little glue in a few places to secure the ribbon.
Caution: do not use the clasps, just take the necklace on and off over your head
