Please note that we expect these kits to go quickly. We are making them as fast as possible and will keep reordering supplies as needed, but we recommend ordering ASAP, especially if you are ordering one as a gift. Please be patient as we work to make and get these out as we do expect delays. You can email email@example.com with any questions.
This 31-inch-long stunning necklace is made of Toho beads woven in a long strip that attaches at the end and is hung with two gold-plated charms. The kit comes with everything you need to make the necklace, a one-year subscription to Beadographer bead software (or an additional year if you already have one) and access to an instructional weave-along which will take place in March and guide you through warping, weaving and finishing this piece. The pattern for this project will be shared in Beadographer where you can edit it to change the colors, patterns or length for future projects.
What is a weave-along?
A weave-along is an online course focusing on a specific project. Every Sunday for the length of the weave-along participants will get an email with links to instructions for the week ahead that might include downloadable .PDFs, online written content and/or videos. This is not a live event, but does take place over a specific time frame so participants are all working on the same part of the project at generally the same time. Weave-along participants are encouraged to ask questions and engage with other members of the weave-along via email and social media.
