Starburst Necklace (Water) Part 3

I finished my Starburst Galaxy necklace in this color scheme inspired by water. 

In the Starburst Galaxy class students will learn to make a whole galaxy of beaded stars.  I wanted students to make a nice sample of the different sizes, so the kits we are assembling will make the 5 different stars shown here.   (These 5 stars are just a few of the 20 or more possibilities you can make with this technique.)    The kits include enough materials to make 9 different stars:  1 large 8-star and 2 each of the smaller stars.   With 9 stars, you can make earrings, pendants, a bracelet or a necklace, or some combination of these.  We thought it would be the most fun and informative for you if the kits make a bunch of different stars, and then let to you decide how to finish your stars into jewelry.  I finished mine into a necklace with some twisted cubic right angle weave in the back.

I'm going to make two more beaded star kits for this class.  For the "Fire" and "Gothic" Starburst kits, we just ordered a HUGE pile of Swarovski crystals yesterday morning.  Once the crystals arrive, I'll start beading some sample, and show you photos as I take them.  Thanks for looking.


  1. Will you sell instructions and kits on your site after the show, for those of us who can't attend? I must admit to lusting after it in my heart. :)

    1. Yes we will sell patterns and any leftover kits after the show. Thanks for asking.

  2. Love you necklace and color scheme!
