Create a lushly beautiful, adjustable lariat neckpiece with this kit

What I love about this is that it's the best of both beading worlds: weave the tassel ends and string the rest on Soft Flex wire

This is for the colorway illustrated in the photo of the beads in bags along with the loose beads. The first photo shows the beads offered in this kit, the second photo shows three completed lariats, and the third zeroes in on the bead-woven tassel ends

Kit includes:
*printed instructions with text and illustrations, including an alternative "idea" page
*approximately 20 grams each of three colors size 11/0 seed beads for tassels
*approximately 50 pieces pressed glass dangle beads (for this kit, they are 5x8mm drop shaped beads)
*size 8/0 and 6/0 seed beads to string on the soft flex part of the lariat
*a generous assortment of beads for the soft flex part of the lariat, including vintage Czech glass, vintage Japanese lampwork glass, vintage Lucite beads, contemporary Czech glass, and a special "Design Inside Glass Surface" bead
*one 4-foot length of .014", 21 strand Soft Flex nylon coated wire
*2 sterling silver crimp beads
*2 sterling silver crimp covers

You will need to provide (not included in kit):
*size 12 beading needles
*your favorite beading thread and thread conditioner
*sharp pointy scissors
*flat needle nose pliers
*your favorite work surface

Please note that this kit is best for people who are comfortable with peyote stitch. The instructions cover the techniques used in the necklace, but leaves the overall designing of the necklace to the discretion of the user.

I've taught beadweaving workshops nationally since the late 1990s. These are original instructions I created in 2009 and updated in 2011. I'm happy to help with any questions that come up when you're creating these neckpieces.
