Additional Information
Although Ariana is dripping with multiple layers of beads, Anna Bronze findings, freshwater pearls, Swarovski pearls and bicones, and fringe -- this piece is actually fairly easy to put together. If you are looking to make a necklace that is a stunning head turner than this is for you. The instructor designed this piece for an International Beading competition and then decided to share her with the world. Instructions are very detailed with numerous photos to help work through the whole project.
