Byzantine Cross Kit (Silver/Amethyst)


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.
