Byzantine Cross Kit (Silken Gold/Crystal Copper)


Out of stock


Mix Herringbone, Peyote and Square Stitch together in your beadwork, sometimes all within one row, and you’ll produce some stunning sculptural effects as well as have a lot of fun. It’s a bit like doodling three-dimensionally. I just love those “what if….” moments when I’m experimenting and mixing stitches and the Byzantine Cross incorporates all of this.

The Byzantine Cross is made from a few different components, worked together to produce a three-dimensional, reversible piece. If you want to challenge yourself and boost your beading techniques, this is it!  Add a loop to the top sector of the cross, add a chain and make it into a fabulous pendant. But don’t stop there, the instructions extend to different bead sizes so you can make the cross in other colours and sizes – why not make three – size 8°, size 11° and size 15°, and wear them all at the same time on different length chains!

General Kit Notes:

When you purchase one of my kits you will automatically receive a link to download and print off the pattern for yourself (A4 format is best), lowering postage costs; the kit pack will be sent by 1st class post. As these patterns are often large files containing a lot of information, they may take a minute or so to download. If you do not have the facility to print your pattern, email me with your address details and I will send you the printed pattern with your kit.

All patterns contain detailed step by step written instructions accompanied by helpful colour diagrams and images, a full list of materials and other requirements, plus comprehensive notes about the beadwork design.
