Crystals are fun, super duos are fun, but sometimes you need to get your teeth into a purely seed-beading project and this one fits the bill. Tubular herringbone with increases and decreases accented with fringe beads and as many colours as you like will entertain and engage you in the making, resulting in an incredibly dimensional necklace. Pick a main colour and coordinating fringe beads, and then go to town on the accent colours. The sample uses seven accents, but even one will look fabulous. You can also collect all those teeny-tiny amounts of left-over beads for a more bohemian look, as each stripe uses only twelve seed beads. This necklace is not a quick project, but there are only two rows to repeat once the pattern is set up, so it becomes quite a rhythmic stitching experience. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY tubular herringbone stitch square stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Necklace is made to fit

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!
