Inspired by the exquisite textiles and Passementerie I found in a tiny store in Venice, this gorgeous silk pod is easy to construct with simple seams and gathers. It gives delightful shapes to embellish with crystal-encrusted beadwork. The result is a light yet intricately linked pendant suspended from a dainty chain. The chain is also embellished with beaded links.
This design uses pre-prepared silky fabric cut to shape. A fabric only pack will be available to purchase on the workshop in a choice of 5 colourways at a cost of £5.00 each.
