Hi folks,

First, a warm thank you to Brenda Oliver and her helpers for teaching the Coraling Technique class. I hope you're all having fun with this versatile technique and we'll be seeing some of your lovely projects at the next meeting.

Thanks again Brenda!

Our next project is the Garden Necklace. This is a pretty necklace you can embellish as much (or as little) as you like.

Supply List:

Size eleven seed beads (for the "strands" or body of the necklace and the flower/leaf embellishment). It's recommended that you select,

* Three colors for the strands or body of the necklace (usually light greens or beiges)
* Six (or more) colors for the flowers.
* Two colors for the leaves. (usually medium greens that can also be paired up with the light greens/beiges).
* Size 15 seed beads to coordinate with the colors used in the flowers. These will be used for embellishments.

Additional beads that might be nice include small "daggers" for some of the leaves, 3mm Czech beads for the flower centers, 3mm or 4mm cubes or maybe some drops. None of these are mandatory, just if you have them lying around.

Size 6 Fireline

Size 10 needles and maybe a size 12 if you need a smaller needle to go through some of the Size 15 beads.


Wax or Thread Heaven.

Beading mat in a contrasting color to the beads in your project.

A clasp.
