Caroline's Necklace

PROJECT N1017
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Beginner
Delicate seed beads are woven around a channel bead core and suspended from a delicate chain in this necklace. A must for any summer look.
Instructions
  1. Before you begin, watch the video: How to Cover a Channel Bead Core with Bead Weaving.
  2. Thread a size 12 beading needle with a 3' length of white Wildfire beading thread.
  3. Using even count peyote stitch, which is demonstrated in this video, weave together size 11/0 gilt lined white opal Miyuki delica beads with rows that are 8 beads wide.
  4. Complete 34 rows of weaving. Do not tie off or cut your thread yet.
  5. As demonstrated in the first video, zip up the ends of your weaving loosely and then tighten around a Nunn Design antiqued 22k gold plated channel bead core. Tie off and weave in your threads.
  6. Cut a 16" length of 22k gold plated cable chain and slide it through the hole in your bead.
  7. Use a 4mm 22k gold plated jump ring to attach a gold plated lobster clasp to one end of the chain.
  8. Attach another jump ring to the other end of the chain.
