Earth Gem Bolo Pattern (PDF)


Earth Gem Bolo features a rough-cut crystal seated in a textured beaded bezel and is accented with pearls and/or semi-precious beads. The twisted Ndebele rope is increased at the ends to incorporate an accent bead. Learn to start the twisted Ndebele rope with a removeable starter piece, which allows the rope to beaded at both ends. The embellished rough crystal is stitched to the slide piece creating a bolo. Embellish and accent the crystal and bolo ends with picots, pearls and semi precious beads to your liking. You will create a one-of-a-kind art necklace. Because each kit is unique, contact Leslee for the latest kit availability at lesfrumin@mac.com.
