This 7-Strand braided Pearl Necklace is created solely for the class of AKS virtual Gathering. The necklace features an artfully blended mix of beads in different sizes, colors and shapes. In the project, a pattern design is introduced for a beaded focal section in 7-Strand pearl necklace. This pattern design will open up a lot of possibilities for creating varieties of stylish braided projects with some of your bead stash. In the class, the pattern principle, the template I created, and the techniques to set up the bead sequencing will be described and demonstrated, as well as other techniques used in this design.

Kit: $66.00, includes kit and USPS shipping. In the kit: instructions, all required beads (bicone and roundel crystal beads, fresh water pearls, daggers, antique silver beads & Japanese seed beads), set of 11pc shell pearls, 7pc S-Lon cords (pre-cut) and a core cord, end cap clasp, a paper 7 Strand template.
