Victorian style seed beaded necklace

Project Description

Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? The quality of my work. It can take as long as an inch an hour to create this piece! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have good lighting and if you are doing this for the first time, it's a good idea to use beads in contrasting colors, so that it's easier for you to see which bead to pass the thread through. These tiny 15/0 beads can take some time getting used to.

What you will need

  • Japanese seed beads
  • bugle beads
  • thread
  • bead caps clasp
  • Swarovski crystals.

Thank you!
ladybeadl9757612 asked:
This pattern looks very much like one I have seen in a magazine. It is illegal to use designs from magazines and sell the finished products without permission from the designer.
siggysbeads answered:
I am quite offended by your comment. Why do you assume that I copied this design? I learned beading from my mother in law back in 2012 and have never even opened up a beading magazine! I take pride in my creations and every one of them first starts with a vision in my head.
ljhoopes asked:
That is out of this world! The colors are so pretty. I looked up the pattern, but didn't find anything as pretty as this. Perfect job.
siggysbeads answered:
Thank you so much for your kind words. I appreciate that!!

Hi Beverly, I don't have a pattern, but you can look up Russian Spiral. You may be able to find a tutorial on Youtube. :)
