Lady Danbury Necklace

Recurring event see all

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.

Needless to say, I changed quite a bit, and hers appears to be gemstones, not beads, but you get the idea...

This piece is suitable for beaders who are comfortable with reading bead patterns and know many of the common stitches and terminology
