Pattern Description:

Providing 21 pages of text with 113 illustrations, this bead pattern offers instructions that are easy to follow yet full of helpful tips. Color gradation is the focus of my Color Passages necklace. You learn to work smooth gradations of color in the cord and the two pendants. My beading design for this versatile necklace uses tubular and flat peyote stitch and brick stitch. Using my bead pattern, you peyote-stitch a cord, finishing with a beaded end cap in which you learn to decrease. You work the ruffled, brick-stitch pendant around a larger bead and create a second flat, brick-stitch pendant. Must be very comfortable with peyote stitch.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Size as required


  • Cylinder beads (Delicas)5 colors, fire polished crystals or equivalent beads, button for clasp
