Fall for Fruit Necklace

PROJECT N2286
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Advanced

This long necklace combines tiny pieces of brick stitch for a unique bead woven design. Complete with a tassel on the end, this is the perfect accessory for the Fall.

Instructions
  1. Before beginning this project, please watch our video: How To Do Brick Stitch Bead Weaving. Also watch: How to Make Increases and Decreases in Brick Stitch and Tips for Advanced Brick Stitch Patterns.
  2. From what you learned in the videos and following along with the PDF pattern, begin your first row of ladder stitch at the top of the yellow piece with a 3 foot length of thread. It may help to turn your pattern to the side so that you work your way up on the pattern, so that you would do a zig zag as you work to the other side. Note that your second row is a decrease and then each row following will be one increase and one decrease to move in a diagonal as seen in How to Do Diagonal Brick Stitch Bead Weaving. When you have finished this piece, tie off and weave in your tails.
  3. Move on and complete all four pieces of bead weaving.
  4. Then, to see how to finish this necklace, please watch our video: How to Use Jump Rings to Connect Bead Weaving Components. In this video you will see how to attach the bead woven pieces using jump rings and how to attach the chain and finish the clasp.
