Item details

This listing is for a bead embroidery necklace kit so you can construct the lovely dragonfly pendant and hang it from the included leather cord. (This listing is for the kit, not for the finished necklace). You can make the necklace cord as short as you like, or up to 22 inches in length, and the pendant itself is approximately 4 inches long.

I use only the highest quality materials in my kits, as I want you to be satisfied with the end result of your beadwork. This kit includes a gorgeous hand-painted dragonfly Czech button which I have already glued to a pretty fuchsia bead backing, a wonderful Czech flower, size 11 and 15 Japanese seed beads, lovely opalescent purple and gold daggers, Czech pressed gold leaves, unique fuchsia and purple 3mm beads, Ultrasuede material, beautiful dark purple leather cord, and cord ends with a lobster clasp and an extension chain. You will only need to provide a few standard items that are clearly listed out for you in the instructions, and I have included plenty of extra beads for you to enjoy.

The kit is my own design, and the instructions for this kit are written with all levels of bead embroidery artists in mind. It allows flexibility in the design for those who are more adventurous and would like to include their own personal touches. I have reviewed and tested the instructions several times to ensure they are clearly written, and have had others help edit them for clarity as well. There are almost 60 color photographs in the instructions to help you along your beading journey, and several bead stitch diagrams to refer to.

The story behind the design: Summer is upon us! It is a lovely time of year, but sometimes it’s too hot to enjoy the outdoors, and we just want to stay inside and enjoy a project that can take us away from the heat and the craziness of vacationers.

Who says you can’t cure the “summertime blues?” You can, by making and wearing this dragonfly pendant! Everyone loves seeing dragonflies in the summer as they dance through the air with their acrobatic flights, or balance oh-so-carefully on a slender blade of grass.

In this pendant, the dragonfly flits amongst a blue Czech flower and golden leaves, which echo the colors of the Czech hand-painted button and the gossamer wings of the dragonfly. The piece is resplendent in shades of azure blue, fuchsia, purple and gold, and includes dangles of gorgeous opalescent daggers. The iridescent button changes color from purple, to dark blue, to fuchsia, as light reflects from its surface.

The included lovely dark purple 20-inch leather cord can be made shorter, or can adjust to as long as 22 inches, and finishes off the piece beautifully.

Note: I'm not able to take returns for kits as it's impossible to ensure all the pieces are still in them, but if you have any questions or concerns, I want to make sure you are happy. Just contact me and we will make sure you're satisfied with your purchase.

I hope you enjoy making this kit as much as I enjoyed creating it for you!

FAQs

Jewelry is not intended for children ages 13 or under. We cannot accept exchanges for jewelry that has regular wear and tear. I wear my beaded jewelry often, and so far all of it has held up quite well! If you do have an issue though, please contact me and I'm sure we can figure something out. I like happy customers!

I try to make my kits so they will fit most adult wrist sizes, and include enough materials so bracelets will fit from 5 inch to 8 inch wrists. We're all different sizes and shapes in this world, and I like to sell kits that will fit most people. If you do need a larger size, please contact me and I can figure out how to make a kit for you - the price would be a bit higher since it requires more materials, but I like everyone to be able to enjoy my designs.

Please contact me if you would like a custom piece designed and made for you. I do need quite a bit of notice for custom orders as I have a very full schedule, so I would need a few months notice for each custom piece. If I can't fulfil your request in the time you desire, I will let you know immediately.
