Tassels are timeless. This necklace was inspired by an Art Deco necklace made of black spinel gemstones and diamonds. The delicate looking chain is actually quite sturdy and can be used alone, as a layering necklace, or chain to use with your other pendants. You can change up your look any time because the pendant is reversible. Students will Learn: Many different techniques to keep students challenged and engaged. The bead cap and bead bezels are made using sculptural tubular peyote. The bead swirl is created with St. Petersburg chain and the neck chain is created with flat spiral stitch. Embellishment techniques will also be covered. You will learn how to make each component and how to combine them to create a sparkling necklace.
