The beauty and brilliance of diamonds has been admired throughout history. However, in past centuries their use was reserved strictly for royalty. Today, thanks to remarkable diamond substitutes like Cubic Zirconia, almost anyone can afford to dapper up their accessory collection with dazzling, eye-catching jewelry.

This is why I was so excited to participate in this round of Blogging for Beads with I would get the chance to create something shimmery, sparkly, and beautiful and could be worn for the upcoming holidays or even for a bride walking down the aisle. had such a huge selection of Cubic Zirconia beads that is was hard to choose. But, ultimately I went with some classic beads that paired nicely with sterling silver and Swarovski Pearls that I tend to use quite often. Just with 8 mm round crystal cubic zirconia, 10 mm Swarovski platinum pearls, sterling silver bezel set cubic zirconia links, and a few odds and ends I had around the house....I created this beautiful, sparkly masterpiece:

I can't wait to wear it to the holiday parties that are coming up....quicker than we realize!

Disclosure: I participate in Blogging for Beaders with and have received the products free of charge from them. I am honestly reviewing the products and have not been paid for my endorsement as it pertains to the products received.
