Beadwork Alternate Colorway Information for Agnieszka Watts’s Stardust Nebula Necklace Pattern

Agnieszka Watts created 3 colorways of her Stardust Nebula Necklace for the December 2018/January 2019 issue of Beadwork. In addition, she made a bracelet, 3 pairs of earrings, and a pendant. The project is long, with lots of parts to fit together, so we didn’t have enough room to show all of the alternate colorways in the magazine. So, we are showcasing the full portfolio for you here. Agnieszka invested a lot of time and creative energy adapting the pattern into so many pieces of jewelry!

Stardust Nebula Necklace

The main colorway of Agnieszka’s Stardust Nebula Necklace uses metallic flax gold 3-hole CzechMates beams, matte metallic copper 2-hole Nib-bit beads, bronze CzechMates prongs, and a variety of beads in warm metallic and blue suede colors. The components are 3D and layered, for an intricate design with lots of depth. (See the magazine for the complete materials list and instructions for this colorway.)
