Ice Princess

Ice Princess
Beadwork Magazine December 2007/January 2008

"Inspired by Victorian lace, designer Lisa Kan created graceful peyote loops to adorn a herringbone necklace. Crystal quartz briolette beads cluster like frozen droplets."

The good folks at Interweave have added the Ice Princess project to their Beading Daily Online Store. This project was originally published in Beadwork Magazine, December 2007/January 2008. Thank you for your email requests to them, which made this project available to those who may have missed out on this project or could not find the back issue at your LBS (local bead store).

The briolettes are from Taj Company. And, as usual, I couldn't stop at one necklace so I made an alternate version in silver with dusty pink charlottes.
Whether pretty in romantic dusty pink or fabulous in glistening gold, I hope you'll love this elegant Victorian lace inspired design. The cubic zircon 4-loop connectors (CO67) and clasp, which perfectly accents this design, are created by Ezel Jewels. And you only need one hank of size 13 charlottes, which you can find from the Garden of Beadin'. A wire armature in the center of the necklace creates structure and a nice drape. I hope you'll enjoy making this necklace and transform yourself to an Ice Princess.
