A Trio of Beaded Necklaces using cashmere for that extra bit of style and grace! Each necklace requires approx 20 yards of fiber and works up quickly ... a perfect gift for that special someone!

Pretty in Pink -- 40 shank buttons (faceted in jewel tones) are placed
Emerald Beauty -- 34 glass beads (size 6) are pre-strung
Beaded Love -- 41 shank buttons (translucent hearts) are placed
