A little about me and my patterns--I've been a technical writer for about 18 years for many fortune 500 and fortune 1000 companies. My undergraduate degree is in technical communications and my masters degree is in fine arts: writing.
The instructions I've written here are comprehensive from threading the needle to how to finish your piece. I provide a graphic with every step and every step is ONLY one step.
I teach these patterns in libraries across Long Island. I teach using the patterns and know the spots people have trouble and refine the patterns with each class. In short, my work has been reviewed many times allowing me to make sure that they are complete and thoroughly tested.
You can be sure that you will be able to follow my patterns and create your jewelry!
I was asked to design a choker inspired by the jewelry worn on the PBS show Downton Abbey just in time for season 3! The focal point of the necklace is made using a modified right angle weave (RAW) stitch. This necklace can be completed within 2 hours. It's not a difficult design. GREAT for a beginner.
The necklace can be lengthened by adding more 8/0 seed beads to the chain. The materials list above (and provided with the kit) will adequately provide for a 16" to 18" choker.
When you buy this pattern, you are now entitled to make this necklace. Please--do not distribute, lend, teach, copy, or sell my pattern. It's not good for you. You will have trouble sleeping and terrible headaches (I'm talking migraines--not worth it). Mass production (like a factory) is not permitted. If you sell the necklace please give credit to the designer--ME!
