A Garland of Jeweled Links & Chain Kit
©2002 by Cynthia Rutledge

A Garland of Jeweled Links & Chain ©2002 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.

The kit contains:

  • A complete, row per row instruction sheet
  • A color Xerox image of A Garland of Jeweled Links & Chain
  • 15/0s for making the Figure 8’s, bezel embellishment around the Mabe´ Pearl, and edge-stitching.
  • Delica beads for making the pendant, links, closure and Brick Stitch diamonds.
  • 7 colors of 15/0s for edge-stitching, beaded beads and embellishing
  • 5 colors of 11/0s for making the rings, beaded beads and embellishing
  • 3 colors of 4mm Czech Fire Polish beads for embellishing the channels of the rings
  • Tiny Tim’s (cute little drops) for embellishing
  • 6 colors of 4mm Czech glass rondelles
  • 1 Mabe´ Pearl as the focal point on the pendant. Since these are natural blister pearls, the shapes and colors may vary.
  • 1 bobbin of One G thread
  • 2 size 12 beading needles
  • 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 then One G, please feel free to use that as a replacement. For the best possible product, please use a color of thread that compliments the Delica bead and the main 15/0 color.
  • 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
  • Work surface of choice
  • Lighting and magnification
