Sweet Garden - Instruction PackDesigned by Nancy Cain. 

Nancy used the Garden Sweet Pea as her model for this necklace. They are 20-30% sweeter than other peas. These plump, juicy peas taste like little pearls of sugar. They also make great art with sculptural peyote. Suspend three pods and crystals from an intricate central component of tubular peyote. Make the central ring with a new, easy circular peyote method that is fast, tight and three-dimensional. Find another pea pod at the back of the necklace for the clasp.

Technique - Peyote and Netting
Level - Intermediate-Advanced
Pattern with full diagrams and written instructions
