eTutorial "TALAVERA" a unique centrepiece pendant design


"Talavera" - a design inspired by a necklace worn by Michelle Pfeiffer in the movie 'Dark Shadow' and resembling colourful Mexican tile designs. Talavera is an original unique centrepiece, using a glowing Lunasoft cabochon, large shell pearl drops, Czech crystals and seed beads. All items come together to create a very eye-catching, striking and unique necklace.
This tutorial includes material lists, item codes, suggested places to buy the items, as well as the alternate list of materials and pattern variation for the second colour way.

The centrepiece measures 75mm (3") at its widest point.

This Intermediate/Advanced Level Tutorial comes with 29 pages containing 123 full colour illustrations in PDF format.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Sitting and watching the movie Dark Shadow for the third time I noticed the necklace worn by Michelle Pfeiffer when she meets Johnny Depp. It was a four sided metal piece and rather large. I wondered if I could translate the design into beads and wanted to make it with a five component piece rather than four.
When the design was completed my friend Mikki Ferrugiaro commented how much it reminded her of 'Talavera' Mexican tile designs - thus the name.
