The Peppermint Treat is this season's MUST HAVE holiday necklace and earring set! Red and white peppermint swirl candies are bedecked with sparkling crystal bicones. (They may look good enough to eat, but they're actually lampwork glass beads.) Various Czech glass shapes are stacked to make even more yummy looking peppermint treats to dangle from the easy-to-make (even for beginners!) silver plated chain. Following the detailed, step-by-step instructions in your kit, you'll step up your jewelry-making game and learn how to make this gorgeous embellished chain centerpiece and transition seamlessly to a dramatic, ombré beaded braid. The peppermint candy beads make adorable matching earrings!
Techniques used: kumihimo, basic chain maille, peyote stitch
