What advice would you give someone starting this project? The best advice I could give applies to this and any other beaded jewelry project -- use a good quality, flexible beading wire. Why would you risk investing precious time and money in any beading project by using anything less than a good quality beading wire? I use only Beadalon or SoftFlex 49-strand beading wire because of its strength and flexibility. As you can tell from the many ways I have shown that this necklace can be worn, the 49-strand beading wire is flexible enough that it can quite literally be tied in knots.
