Pineapple Blossom gets Married!

I began this necklace, using my Pineapple Blossom tutorial, as a demonstration piece for the TOHO booth at the Bead & Button show, but it proved to be a less than terrific demo piece.  The silver-lined crystal beads can be challenging to see without a darker mat and great light, and I wanted onlookers to be able to see what I was doing.

The results are gorgeous though, and I think this would be a great wedding necklace!

I had a hard time shooting this piece, and here is an image on black, that helps show detail.

Several people had asked if I will kit this, and I don't think so.  But I am happy to tell you, it can be made with my tutorial, and I will provide the beads list below!

My pattern is calibrated for a leather backing on the jewel, and that process is included in the tutorial, as well a in a video here on my blog.

Make some bride happy!

Or you can buy that piece in my Etsy shop here.
