Hi, thank you so much for asking! I string them on Softflex and separate each Channel bead with a 12mm pearl. You can see the sample necklace in the video. Check out Design Variation Lesson.

I can't tell how large the inside circumference is from the photo but this design would make awesome napkin rings! They are very beautiful!

Hi Sami G, what a great idea! These are pretty small, you can't get your finger inside them. But if you used larger beads, instead of 15s and 11s, then use 11s and 8s and increase the number of beads in the ring. Maybe even 6s and 8s. Have fun and if you make them, would you post a photo of them? Thanks! Have fun.

Can you post a picture here of the necklace you made with the large pearls? I cannot find it in the video, and I am tired of looking for it, lol. I want to make one like it but with only 6 peyote tubes and 9 pearls.

Hi Joy, thank you for the question... I am sorry that I can't post a photo in this query... I did post a comment in the project forum about the Delica vs Seed Bead post. Please send a question to the Instructor inbox. Thanks! Nancy

Is this necklace project part of the video? Are there instructions as part of the class? Just beautiful!

Hi agov, no but you can easily make this. I used the single channels and spaced them with 12mm pearls and 6mm swarovski 5040 rondelles. Have fun! Nancy
