Dew Drops Supply List

This project works up quickly and has a nice soft silky feel. You are limited only by your imagination
and the combinations of beads are endless.

Things to consider; what kind of statement do you want to make and what is in your stash?

Project supplies:

Beads that connect the larger beads - 11° seed beads - 1 tube

Beads in the chain portion - 5° triangles, 4mm or 6mm round beads (approximately 100 beads)

Section of embellishment beads - 15° seed beads - 1 tube
- 11° seed beads
- 3mm through 8mm beads or pearls (approx. 50-60)

(The embellishment beads can be any combination. They can be faceted, round, oblong or donut shaped. Pretty much anything goes.)

General supplies:
Fireline 6lb
Thread conditioner (Thread Heaven or wax)
Needle size 10 & 12
Clasp of your choice (or just connect the ends)
Mat – in color contrasting to beads
Bead scoop
Pencil/pen for notes
Magnifying glasses and/or light if needed

Note: The size 11° beads in the embellishment section may be the same as used for the chain portion. Their
purpose is to enhance and define the color of your large beads. The size 15 beads are used to protect the thread
from the sharp edges of the beads and to add color and interest.
