Fireworks Necklace


An explosion of color on a silver base - it looks like fireworks going off on your neck! This necklace was featured in the Summer 2015 edition of PerlenPoesie.

It is made in CRAW (Cubic Right Angle Weave) and is somewhat time intensive to complete. I describe a method of sewing CRAW, although if you know another method (and there are others...) please feel free to use whatever method is comfortable for you. If you've never done CRAW, the instructions are in the file, but it is obviously helpful if you know the stitch already.

You will need seed beads in sizes 15 and 11, as well as round crystals in 4mm and 6mm. I used a magnetic silver clasp, but clasps are always very personal and perhaps you'll find a better one to suit your tastes. I obviously like the one I used. :-)

The tutorial is 10 pages long with detailed instructions. If you have any questions, though, I'm happy to help out!
