Use CzechMates to add structure and little windows to your herringbone rope, helped also by farfalle and fire-polished beads. Great as a necklace or bracelet. You should be comfortable with herringbone stitch and have good control of thread tension. There are bits that are a little fiddly, and loose tension will not be your friend! One strand of 50 Czech mates is enough for a choker-length necklace, so make sure you have more if you want a longer necklace. This design works well in highly contrasting colour-ways as well as in a more monochromatic palette. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY herringbone stitch right angle weave (helpful) SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Necklace 16" or more to suit; bracelet to suit

Recommended with this pattern

  • Czech 4mm fire-polished beads (at least 24)
  • Czech mates tile beads (48 or more)
  • Farfalle or peanut beads or berry beads (less than 10g)

I can neither imagine nor remember a time when I wasn't making things. I have tried almost every fiber art, and currently knit and spin my own yarn. I sew clothes and furnishings occasionally. I've dabbled in polyclay, lampwork and silver-smithing, but immerse myself in seed beading. I teach at a local bead store, as well at national shows from time to time. Patterns in my shop are by and large based on classes I have taught, so they've been tested on real people!
