Basic Skills Necessary:

  • herringbone stitch

Pattern Description:

These vintage-inspired components will be among your most versatile tools. Combine them with purchased metal or stone rings or your own beaded rings for a fluid necklace or bracelet. Use one as an elegant bail for a teardrop-shaped focal bead. Work a shorter variation for sweet little earrings.

They're also great for using up the last few drops of those gorgeous seed beads, or those last two rondelles, or for displaying that crystal drop.

I have used mostly Chinese crystal rondelles, but Czech are also suitable. If you use crystal, I recommend Fireline to protects against abrasion.
