Smile Yoke Jewelry Making Project Made with Swarovski Square Aqua BeadsThis jewelry making project is called the Smile Yoke because the bottom wire component in the yoke resembles a smile.  This is an advanced beginners project.  It uses the technique of combining two simple and easy to make wire components rather than trying to make one more complex wire component.  This yoke can be used as an interchangeable yoke as described here, or it can be included as centerpiece of a regular necklace.  Please visit the picture of this completed necklace here.
