Here's a really easy necklace project using leather. It proves that elegance does not have to be elaborate. I wanted to contrast the classy look of graduated pearls with the everyday look of leather.

If you're new to adding crimp ends to leather, you may want to review our instructional video How to Make a Leather Crimp End Necklace Video.

Rating YES! Elegant it is!
 
I loved making this necklace as well as now wearing the finished product! All of the silver beads make me feel rich, which I am NOT, and elegant, preparing to go to some party on an upper floor in New York City :D The necklace was easy to make, just followed the directions - you''''ll hear that over and over again from me! But, it gets the job done for me! Make one and enjoy your fantasy :D
