This is a listing for a Pattern/Tutorial. You will not receive the jewelry pictured above. This pattern is a full color 9-page PDF which will show you step by step how to make the Butterfly Rope Lariat I made this beautiful rope to compliment a gorgeous flower bead made by Lea Avroch and like the result so much, that I made a tutorial. The lariat is 45 inches/115 cm in total- not too long (to prevent the focal bead from hitting a table top), and it offers various ways to wear it. This is a quite easy project. With this rope, you can also make bracelets and even a pretty ring. The rope builds up quickly, it is ideal to make a lariat, but also practical for gifts and last-minute projects! Level: Intermediate. Knowledge of Right Angle Weave is an advantage but not essential. Technique: RAW (Right Angle Wave), stringing. Check out my other designs using this technique, the Butterfly Rope Bracelet and the Butterfly Rope Matine, another nifty way of attaching a beautiful focal to the rope including tips how to make a curved rope. Important note: avoid printing, or print more than one page per sheet; my patterns are designed for use with electronic devices and may print very large. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knowledge of RAW (Right Angle Wave) is an advantage but everything you need to know is explained in the tutorial SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS The lariat is 45 inches/115 cm in total- not too long (to prevent the focal bead from hitting a table top), and it offers various ways to wear it

My book Diamond Weave, written in collaboration with Gerlinde Lenz, can be found on Amazon in selected countries, or from the press - CreateSpace, and soon digitally here on Craftsy, I started beading in 2004. Off-loom beadweaving and bead embroidery are my favorite beading techniques. I won 3 times a gold medal in the Fire Mountain Gems and Beads beading contests, two in 2006, of which one Grand Prize Gold Medal and one in 2016. I also won a bronze medal in 2009 and a silver medal in 2010. I've also written in books and magazines - find out more on my blog:
