Product Description

“Chunky Chip Swirl” Necklace/Bracelet Downloadable PDF Beading Pattern #20046

This “Chunky Chip Swirl” necklace and/or bracelet is super easy to stitch up and makes a dazzling statement piece!  A substantial, 1/2” wide swirling, drapey rope, this design’s got it all and will have you hooked (thus the decadent ice cream name). You’ll want to make it up in different color schemes for the holidays and favorite seasons!  So, grab your favorite gemstone chips (readily available from most bead stores and suppliers), some coordinating sparkly fire polished glass beads and seed beads and follow this simple pattern, with over 20 high resolution full-color photos and easy to follow step-by-step directions. You’ll have a elegant, eye-catching gem of a rope that you can wear and show off in no time!  This project is great for beaders of all skill levels, including absolute beginners. Note: This makes a great coordinating and complimentary necklace to my “Gem Garden” bracelet.  As always, bead happy!
