It’s been months in the making and many of you have been watching the progress and updates of my mixed-media “Tibetan Inspired Beaded Rope Necklace” project. Well, I’m happy to report that not only is the tutorial finished, but the beading kit is now available! The kit contains twenty colors of Delica, seed, and Magatama beads as well as twelve of my one-of-a-kind handmade faux amber, coral, and turquoise accent beads (four of each…they are shown at the lower right side in the photo) plus a handmade one-of-a-kind sterling silver textured heart talisman (to bring luck and love to the wearer!). The step-by-step tutorial included with the kit shows how to stitch the tubular Ndebele rope and Peyote-stitched geometric charms as well as how to make polymer clay gemstone beads should you wish to create a collection of faux amber, coral, and turquoise yourself! I’ve also included instructions for sawing, texturing, and finishing a sterling silver heart talisman. Colorful and versatile, this rope is such fun to make that you may want to make a wardrobe of these in other colors!
