Product Description

“Tin Cup Collection” Necklace, Earrings & Bracelet Beading Tutorial #16728

This necklace is popularly known as a “Station” necklace, “floating” necklace and most recently, as a “Tin Cup” necklace (as popularized by the 1996 movie Tin Cup in which Rene Russo wore a version of this necklace with widely spaced pearls).  I was inspired to make this design into a pattern when I was taken by one worn by a well known female political figure.  I though it just looked so feminine (without too much frill) and classy!  And, it offered just the right “something” to set off her outfit without being too overpowering.  I imagined that it could go with (and dress-up) virtually anything!  And I was right – I love mine!  I think this necklace could become your go to necklace too!  Make one up in either satiny pearls or sparkling crystals for those special (or semi-special) occasions that you want to add a touch of class and sparkle to your wardrobe.  In this simple beading pattern, with over 40 high resolution photos and easy to follow step-by-step directions, I will teach you how to easily make a lovely float necklace and/or bracelet and a pair of drop earrings to match.  This is a great pattern for beginner beaders, or beginners to wire wrapping.
