Beautiful necklace. Detailed easy to follow instructions. High quality materials. Diane Dennis also sent a file with process shots which show the various stages of beading in actual beads - very useful!

This is the coolest starfish necklace ever! and even the chain is beautiful too. I bought some toho gold-lustered green tea beads that shine like diamonds for my color. Substituted 15/0s and 11/0s in the necklace as I like a more petite chain. Yes, this is definitely a to die for necklace! Very cool.

Please note that I only sell my kits through Etsy, and at a select few shows. I do not sell through any third party web sites. There is a company that is claiming to sell my kits, but in fact they have stolen my Etsy listing.

Please feel free to combine your orders, the shipping is on the first item.
Also, and this is very important please read the listing carefully as I sell supplies and kits, and a few finished pieces.
So don't order a bead supply and expect a finished piece of jewelry. Big smile, yes it has happened!
These are a few things that I always get asked about making and selling my designs and about teaching my designs:
You may use these instructions for your personal use only. You may not reproduce or copy these instructions except to make a working copy for your personal use.
You may not teach this project or give or sell these instructions for profit. Please respect my right as a beader, author, and artist-as this is how I make my living.
You may give the finished beading project as a gift-I would be thrilled. Please give me artist credit.
You may sell my designs as finished pieces in limited quantities. Please give me artist credit. And this is very important; please do not undermine the art of beading by underselling or under valuing by discounting the finished beadwork pieces you make to sell.
