Project Map

Inspired by the vivid colors of Indian saris and elephants with bells on their ankles, Janice found so many choices when designing with the Autumn to Winter Curated Box. "This collection of beads was unusual and very interesting. Kate and I challenged ourselves to create a mix that celebrates the colors and textures of metal, glass and stone. What I did with it was purely an act of joy. My favorite part, I think, is the dangles!”

Whether you choose to make this necklace using the Curated Box, Autumn to Winter, or you gather your own materials and just start creating, it’s really about building the necklace one strand at a time. Remember, strands that have pendants tend to make a “V” and those that don’t, tend to hang round. It’s so critical to hold the strands up as you go to see how they “talk to each other.” This four strand design could have easily been three. It’s up to you! ~janice
