New temptations everyday!
Mid- Month  Special Addition - October 2016


I have had so many of you ask me to bring this kit back and I FINALLY did it. I chose the four most popular colors. The Teardrop Focal Beaded Necklace ©2013 consists of a start and finish with C-Lon Tex 400 and a 4" Teardrop Beaded Focal center. I use the C-Lon Tex 400 because it works up  nicely with the combination of teardrop and seed beads and also makes a nice "stand alone" braid. I have used a mixture of 8/0 and 6/0 seed beads. I love the  "texture" of the varying sizes of beads. The necklace can be made to many lengths - it all depends on how long you make the braided lengths on either side of the focal section. I have included guidelines for lengths ranging from 16" to 24".

- Boro Glass Teardrop Beads
