*NOTE* This kit is designed in conjunction with Beadwork Magazine, meaning by contract when I design this project for publishing, you must get the instructions from Beadwork Magazine or purchase a digital copy of the issue.
I call this kit the Meraki Pendant Kit. For the instructions for this kit you'll need to pick up a copy of the Feb/March 2021 issue of Beadwork Magazine, where this project is featured, in two color ways. This color way is the rose gold/copper/bronze kit. If you do not receive the magazine, you can purchase the digital issue here: https://www.interweave.com/product/beadwork-feb-march-2021-print-edition/
Meraki is a modern greek word that means the soul, creativity and love you put into the making of something. In this case a beautiful necklace.
