Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This is an easy tutorial, it would be helpful to already know the basics of wirework, for example forming a loop, however detailed instruction and step by step photos are included

Pattern Description:

This tutorial teaches you how to make a Lariat style necklace. It is split into three sections. The first covers making the coiled beads, (which could be used as part of any design) they are incredibly quick to make with an eye catching result. The second guides you through making the wire ring and the final section details how to construct this sleek and stylish necklace.

I have used seed beads as part of this design, but this is only a suggestion, you can use any beads you like, as long as the three strands fit through the ring.

This is an easy lesson, with 37 detailed steps over 17 pages with lots of crisp clear colour photos, making it a straight forward, easy to follow guide
