Lady Danbury Necklace
April 15, 2021 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
“Lady Danbury Necklace”
Many people have commented on the beautiful jewelry featured in the Netflix show “Bridgerton”. In one scene Lady Danbury is wearing a beautiful crystal and white necklace with varying drop sections and it really got my wheels turning. The end result was a necklace where the drops resemble feathers, created using St Petersburg stitch. It can take on a completely different personality with each version and color combination, as you can see in the photos. I hope you enjoy it!
This is an original design by Laura. Copies of the pattern will be distributed on the day of class.
