I used rayon “rainbow dyed” from Dyeddreams.com, and rayon slub dark green from the same source, a moss colored rayon ribbon and a narrow suede ribbon(maroon color). My beads were small forest jasper and agate beads in small 4mm and larger for the center part.
braided 26″ for pendant and have 21″ for a 2nd pendant with no beads. Left a space in center for adding a focal piece. And, I experimented with leaving more space between adding beads since they were larger than the pearls.
Finished pendants will be posted on AKS Facebook page.
