This Ianthe necklace features a seed bead rope that winds over and under pearls (or round beads) to make a striking necklace. You can make the centre section longer… or shorter… or continue making over and under loops for the whole necklace.
This is an intermediate project, for beaders with some experience.
This is what you need to make the version shown (length excluding clasp 44cm / 17.5 in):
|Necklace Length - excluding clasp||44cm/nearly 17.5 inches|
|size 11 seed beads||15 to 16 grams|
|size 8 seed beads||4 grams|
|size 15 seed beads, for the clasp||14 beads|
|6mm pearls or round beads||15 beads|
|clasp with rings big enough to take a loop of size 15 beads||1|
|Fireline (or thread of choice...but Fireline is easier to unpick!)|
