One of the fun stops we make at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show is a necklace-making demonstration by Swarovski Ambassador Kristal Wick. She generously offered to explain how to create our Dauphine Street Necklace, designed by Artbeads President and Co-Owner Cynthia Kimura for the demo!
As a Swarovski ambassador, Kristal Wick is part of an exclusive community comprised of other well-known designing experts. Each are established workshop leaders who all share a passion for Swarovski style and design expertise. These ambassadors get to share their knowledge with the public through demonstrations for jewelry making, application techniques and design ideas, as well as on regularly-published blog posts on the Swarovski CREATE YOUR STYLE Sparkling Community.
It’s always so much fun to attend workshops with Kristal Wick, one of our favorite designers. Here are a few photos of her at the demonstration in Tucson this year.

The Dauphine Street necklace design features black and white color scheme using DeCoRé epoxy clay and Swarovski crystal chatons. Dramatic black roses and gunmetal chain complete this feel, sprinkled with a bit of New Orleans French Quarter flair.
