Stitch a constellation of beaded stars with double PRAW! Named after the northern sky constellation, the Cassiopeia necklace features three sizes of beaded stars paired with a collection of pear drops. You’ll use double prismatic right-angle weave (DPRAW)to bezel flat back crystals into the center of each star, and you’ll embellish them with a network of seed beads for simple yet effective star components. This necklace is fully reversible and offers ample opportunities for experimenting with different colors of seed beads. A delicate matching beaded chain completes this piece.

This pattern is appropriate for beaders who are already proficient in CRAW and who would like to explore the possibilities of DPRAW. Beaders who have stitched the Snowflake Pendant, the Peace and Double Hearts, or the Starcatcher Pendant are in great shape to stitch this design.

  • Complete written instructions on how to weave the beaded necklace.
  • 16 pages of step-by-step instructions.
  • 51 full color illustrations and photographs.
  • Several photos of finished jewelry.
