I like many have long admired the Raku pieces of Marianne Kasparian and I had originally intended these pieces to be used as a personal piece for myself. I was asked to please kit the pendant out.
These instructions feature several different beading techniques. They cover the steps of my easy flip way to bezel a cabochon that make the piece completely finished and a way to use a spike as the dangle and how to achieve a custom it fit as the spikes are not all the same in diameter.
Please note that each component is hand crafted and may vary slightly in color, shape and size from what is pictured. Each component is an individual work of art.
Please note at the kit is for the pendant only, no necklace straps, ribbon or chain is included.
Supplies in the kit: • One focal Raku cabochon round shape or Skull shape about 25mm to 38mm • One focal Raku spike to complement the Raku round cabochon or Skull, the sizes range from 50 - 70 mm in length and diameter of about 11-13mm. • Miyuki Delica Beads • Miyuki 8/0 Seed Beads • Miyuki 11/0 Seed Beads • Miyuki 15/0 Seed Beads •Small square of Ultra-Suede
General Supplies Needed: • E6000 glue • Tooth pick • Needles: #10 & #12 • Fireline: 6 lb test or your favorite D weight beading thread • Micro-crystalline or synthetic wax • Scissors • Task light • Magnifier • Thread Burner
