coiled necklace workshop 

Saturday, August 3, 2019 | 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

We will construct a two or three coiled necklace. Once the coiled necklace is constructed it can be decorated with beads, charms, a pendent, etc.
Kit fee: $7.00 payable to the teacher on the day of the workshop.
Max of 20 people. 

List of supplies participants bring:  

  • 2-3 small balls of yarn, each 11 yards long in the color of your choice 

    • 2 balls for a two-coil necklace: pick one dark yarn and one light yarn

    • 3 balls for a three-coil necklace: pick one dark and two lights, or one dark, one light and one medium

    • Any kind of yarn can be used, but not too small or you’ll never finish. For reference, the samples were done with medium-weight yarn. Hairy yarn might not work well. It might get tangled. 

  • Matching thread 

  • (30”) Silky cord (2mm): This can be purchased in the Jewelry dept. of Joann’s.  The teacher will have some in neutrals but it may not match your colors. 

  • 1 ½” long embroidery needle with a sharp point (the eye of the needle needs to be large enough for your yarn; a chenille needle will work best) 

  • Needle threader (large, for your yarn) 

  • Thimble 

  • Scissors

  • Tape measure
