Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

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.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Each component is about an inch and a half long

Materials:

  • Size 11 seed beads in 2 colours, main colour and accent colour, quantities depend on item made
  • 5x8mm or 6x9mm rondelles, 1 per pendant or component
  • Fringe beads: 9 for a pendant, 5 for simple earrings, 8 per link component
  • side-drilled pendant bead (optional) size as desired
  • 12mm or larger rings (optional)
  • ear wires (optional)
  • necklace chain (optional)
  • Your favourite beading thread
  • Your favourite beading needle

You Will Also Need:

  • scissors
  • beading surface
  • thread conditioner (optional)
  • good lighting
  • magnifiers!
