*NOTE* This kit is designed in conjunction with Beadwork Magazine, meaning by contract when I design this project for publishing, you must get the instructions from Beadwork Magazine or purchase a digital copy of the issue. 


  • I call this kit the Meraki Pendant Kit.  For the instructions for this kit you'll need to pick up a copy of the Feb/March 2021 issue of Beadwork Magazine, where this project is featured, in two color ways.  This color way is the silver & purple colorway kit.  If you do not receive the magazine, you can purchase the digital issue here: https://www.interweave.com/product/beadwork-feb-march-2021-print-edition/

Meraki is a modern greek word that means the soul, creativity and love you put into the making of something. In this case a beautiful necklace.
