Crystal necklace pattern now available

I have had a crystal necklace on display in The Beading Room for many months now and it is often admired. Whenever asked how I made it, I always had to look closely to remember just how many core beads were used for each stitch! Problem now solved.

The full pattern, with diagrams is now available in The (Virtual) Beading Room for £4.50 and is an instant download. You can find it at under the necklace section.

There are no plans to make it into a full kit at the moment, but you only have to ask!
