Project Map

Project and Sample by Kate Richbourg

Just like a Folk Tale, your jewelry should tell a good story. Kate uses color and shape to tell a tall tale in this beautiful freehand embroidered cuff...what will your cuff convey? You could also use these techniques to create a stunning brooch or pendant...you do you! Enjoy!

During the live show, Kate starts on a few different samples and ideas. One, her shield-shaped pendant, was later finished and mailed to Janice, who created a necklace around it. Find that project in Soft Flex 101, it's called Fairy Tales.

Design Notes: Kate uses multiple spools of KO...for color! Not because you’ll need so much thread. Choose colors you love, you’re going to see this thread!

Find ingredient quantities for Folk Tales listed above for easy shopping, and find our other samples here. Find the pendant in its finished form, complete on a necklace, on the Fairy Tales page.

Please join us as our worldwide community gathers on Facebook and YouTube at 10:30am Pacific Time on December 30, 2020. It’s so much fun to go live with us and bead together! After the live broadcast the video will be available above.
