Knitted Bead Necklace

Project Description

What are you most proud of? This is the first piece of jewelry I have ever made - before taking Betsy's class I've never knitted with beads and I wasn't even familiar with the basics of beading. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient and enjoy the process - the outcome is quite rewarding.

What you will need

  • yarn (wool/silk)
  • glass beads
  • wood beads

Q&A with ManuelaT

Betsy Hershberg asked:
Wow Manuela! If this is the first bead knitting you've ever done, I can only imagine what lies ahead for you. This is absolutely gorgeous. Having written that you used one of my pieces shown in the class as inspiration, you already know that this combination of colors is near and dear to me. But your exquisite technical work and the added details of the end cap-like silver spacers and the beaded cording makes this necklace all your own. Brava! Can you share for other students the technique you used for the spiral effect beaded cording? If I don't ask, I know someone else will. :-) Thanks so much for sharing.
ManuelaT answered:
Thank you Betsy.
