Kit - Southwest Sunset Necklace
I have been showing my Tucson Vista Necklace all over the place since the publication came out. It is a conversation starter - and a show stopper - for sure. After having several requests to make a simplified version of that piece that could be worn more casually, I came up with this simple yet glamorous pendant necklace.
If you have never worked with SuperDuos to create beaded bezels for Swarovski rivolis and you are intimidated by the scope of the Tucson Vista necklace, the Southwest Sunset necklace is a great place to start. A free, downloadable PDF is included with the purchase of the kit. There is a photo for each step, but I recommend having knowledge of working with a needle and thread as certain basic techniques are not fully explained.
What's included in the kit:
- Swarovski 14mm Rivoli
- SuperDuos in my Southwest Sunset color palette
- Rizos to create the fringe at the bottom of the pendant
- Miyuki 11/0 Seed Beads in Gold
- Gunmetal Chain
- Jump Rings
- Trigger Clasp
What's not included, but necessary for completion of the project:
- 6LB Beading Thread (I use WildFire)
- Size 11 Beading Needles
- Chain Nose Pliers
