Shop update! Glass Bead Necklace Kit

I've always loved the simplicity of knotted silk cord and glass bead necklaces.  I've made dozens over the years for myself and as gifts for friends and family. They are so easy to make and can be customized in so many ways: by bead color, shape, size and with various colors of silk cord, as well as findings and charms. Given my obsession, this seemed like the perfect theme for a new craft kit at Snapcrafty!

Our new diy necklace kit supplies all the glass beads, silk cord and findings you will need to make a beautiful necklace of your very own. It also comes with a tutorial that includes lots of close-up photos and tips to help you complete the project without a hitch. I think these kits would be so much fun to make or give as a holiday gift.

I will also post the tutorial here on the blog soon so that you can make a knotted-silk beaded necklace, even without the kit! 

Here's the example necklace I made for the kit.

I dug up lots of beads in fun colors and shapes!

You can choose the beads according to color families, make a gradient (like a rainbow) or do a random mix.
So what do you think?
