Project and Sample by Janice Parsons and Kate Richbourg

What a cool concept...a collaboration for the ages! This two-part necklace was started by Kate, creating a bead embroidery pendant. The finished pendant was sent to Janice to create a necklace with, and poof! Here is the fabulous result. Kate called her pendant Folk Tales, so we dubbed Janice’s magical spin on it Fairy Tales!

Ingredient Notes:

The list above includes only ingredients used in Janice’s work. The original pendant was created by Kate as Folk Tales, and you can find all the ingredients and instructions for that piece on the Folk Tales Project Page. Janice’s work includes the strung necklace, chain accent, and addition of a briolette to the pendant’s tip.

*For the chain, Janice uses two styles...one as an accent hanging around the pendant, the other as an extender chain to attach the clasp to. You could use all the same chain if you like, it’s up to you!
