Crown Necklace Kit

|Kit # 4 -
Linen palette $145
is an asymmetrical neckpiece. Three pods, each on a stem, drape
in the front of the neckpiece for a soft look. The stems are
gathered together at the closure which is in the front of the
neckpiece and offers a hidden connection. The stems of the pods
wrap around the neck to overlap the front closure with another
pod to give balance and as a camouflage for the closure. The
pods are 3-D shapes using Peyote stitch with a surface embellishment.
Each pod has an added sleeve of leaf shapes at the top giving
the look of an artichoke. The leaf shapes are also made out of
Peyote stitch (circular and flat). The stems are made out of
circular Peyote stitch and circular Herringbone with a variation.
The Herringbone variation uses fringe beads to give a touch of
texture and interest to the stems.
|NOTE: Beads are
shown larger than actual size for clarity. Bead colors are close
but approximate and may vary by monitor type.
