This lovely necklace is reminiscent of ancient Egyptian jewelry. The Pyramid Scape necklace has nine dimensional pyramids fastened across its center to represent the Ennead, also known as the all-powerful 3x3 Triple Triad - completion, fulfillment, and attainment. Designed in multiple tones of the color of gold that the ancient Egyptians associated with the Sun, which is a symbol of happiness, success, attainment, prosperity and true friends. It brightens all things in its rays adding a sense of optimism and good cheer.

Students will learn peyote stitch with CzechMates two-hole brick beads and learn to stitch the pyramids in dimensional peyote stitch with increases and decreases to create the shape. The focus will be on creating the base, making and attaching the pyramids to the base and completing one half of the clasp.
