Mermaids treasure necklace

Mermaids Treasure Necklace

This beading pattern combines two basic stitches, chevron and fringe, to create a fun-to-wear 18" necklace that’s like a spring garden. The mermaid who loves this necklace can be found near the Lorelei Rock of the Rhine River in Germany enjoying the fragrances of beautiful wildflowers. Dangling fringe, the longest 2½” and the shortest 1", contain beautiful Czech glass flowers and leaves. Splashes of color peak through leafy seaweed-like fringes. With eleven pages of detailed step-by-step directions and colored graphic illustrations, you’ll never loose you way.
