Retired - Amphitrite's Pearl Necklace

PROJECT N793
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
Named for Poseidon's bride, Amphitrite, this braided pearl necklace is befitting of the Queen of the Sea. It features 3 gorgeous strands of pearls that have been braided together and is accented by gunmetal chain and findings.
Instructions
Note: you will also need 6 small seed beads such as 11/0 delicas. Please watch the video to see where and when you need them. You will not see them in the finished piece, so it does not matter what color they are.
  1. To make this design, please watch the video: How to Make a Braided Pearl Necklace.
  2. In the video you will learn how to string pearls onto Griffin Silk and use knot covers. You will also learn how to open and close jump rings and how to creatively use toggle rings as anchors on either side of your necklace.
