Circlet of Lace Necklace Kit
©2006 by Cynthia Rutledge

Circlet of Lace Necklace Kit ©2006 by Cynthia RutledgeOur kits are packaged in a handy but strong plastic case that snaps shut securely. This case is just the right size to slip into your bag if you want to take your kit with you. We carefully label each package of beads or embellishments in the kit so you know exactly what to use for each part of the design.

This kit contains:

  • A complete row per row instruction sheet.
  • A color Xerox image of Circlet of Lace
  • 15 grams of 11/0 seed beads for the Herringbone variation base and the toggle body.
  • 25 grams of 15/0 seed beads for the Peyote Stitch tubing and blending in the scallop shapes.
  • 4 colors of 15/0 seed beads (10 grams each) for blending in the scallop shapes.
  • 165 natural pearls (2.5-3mm) for the embellishing on one side of all of the scallop shapes and the closure.
  • 20 flat-backed natural pearls (5.5-6mm) for embellished bands, the connection of the ruffles to the tubing and the ends of the toggle.
  • 1 toothpick to assist with the tubing then as an armature for the toggle base.
  • 2 bobbins of beading thread
  • 2 size 12 beading needle (they are taped to the inside right wall of the kit)
  • A handy plastic carrying case

Supplies you will need to complete your necklace:

  • Every beader uses supplies that they feel comfortable with, so if you prefer different thread, please feel free to use that as a replacement. For the best possible product, please use a color of thread that compliments the 15/0 used for the tubing.
  • Most threads prefer to be waxed. I use Micro-crystal wax. Using wax lubricates the thread and helps to eliminate shredding.
  • Small, sharp scissors or cutters or a Zapper
  • 1 pair of small wire cutters or pearl knotting cutters to cut the toothpick.
  • A magic marker or colored pencil in a color that would compliment your 11/0 seed bead for coloring the toothpick.
  • Beading wax (optional)
  • A small scoop (I use a tiny scoop that maybe holds an 1/8 of a teaspoon) for measuring out beads for the blending areas of the Netted ruffles.
  • Work surface of choice.
  • Lighting and magnification.
  • Optional items: Eventually you will need a tape measure, Macrame´ Board or necklace stand for fine-tuning the finish and a few pins to attach the necklace to the board or the stand.
