For our December new kit Julia has designed another beautiful necklace, the Beijing Kit, that is perfect for any dances, parties or soirees or as a necklace to show off on Christmas day!
Beijing, China’s behemoth of a capital, is known as much for its modern architecture as its ancient sites such as the grand Forbidden City, the imperial palace during the Ming and Qing dynasties.
As seen below the modern architecture is perhaps best admired at night and the glittering lights that reflect in the windows of the tower blocks is mimicked in the necklace in the faceted beads.
Inspired by the bright lights and mix of modern and historical architecture in China's capital city the design is made up of links of seed beads, with four faceted beads and a larger faceted beads below which runs a netted string of seed beads.
The design uses right angle weave and netting stitch.
Available in a choice of four colour ways (Petrol Blue, Brown & Gold, Mauve & Purple, Green and Blue), the design is suitable for an advanced beginner/intermediate skill level and is a fairly quick design to make so perfect for the holiday season!
