Inspiration comes in many forms. And in this case it was two birds building a nest and singing their songs to their young ones.
I wanted to offer a special necklace as a tribute to the coming season, and so here we present Song to Summer.
The necklace design itself might be familiar to some who have been Earth Faire-ians for a while, as quite similar to Dragon Wisdom. For this kit we offer silk thread, in 30 yard hanks, in your choice of either a light green (as shown here) or a deep green, or a black (these are the only colors of thread we currently have in stock)..
Whatever your thread choice, your kit will also include approximately 120 of 3x10mm daggers plus roughly 40 grams of size 6/0 beads, about 120 size 4mm fire polish crystals, and the focal piece you see here of a very sweet blue bird.
This focal piece is paper print wrapped wood pendant (of course finished for stability and longevity). It is a flat square, blue-green, of 38x38x2mm in size.
All of the daggers, crystals, and beads will be chosen to "go" with the thread color of your choice.
Your kit will also include a clasp and the appropriate rings to attach the focal piece. It will not include the knitting needles -- I used size 0 (2mm) for mine.
The finished necklace is about 42" long though you can, of course, make it shorter.
The kit will not automatically include the pattern.
We offer three options. I know some knitters might already have made some of our other necklaces with a similar look. If you feel you do not need another pattern, simply choose "No Pattern Needed."
If you would like a printed copy, please make sure the "Pattern" drop-down menu is set to that.
We also can email the pattern to you via email, though I have to do it manually and usually send it right before I mail the kit (please be patient).
Just make sure that drop-down menu is set as you would like before you check out.
