This pattern was designed and developed by Steph Gibbs. Originally taught as a simple brooch workshop. After adding a few embellishments the design took on a life of it?s own before long a necklace was created.
The Preciosa Czech glass 2 hole Candy beads really lend themselves to petal shapes which is where the inspiration sparked from. The necklace is constructed from individual rosettes sewn together, started from the centre working outwards. This pattern is suitable for people with some beading experience, the 8 page instructions include comprehensive written directions as well as clear diagrams.
PLEASE NOTE: This is not a kit, it is just the instruction, however a kit is also available.
