Last week I found my beaded necklace twisted and squeezed among the other jewelries and sight set a sparkle of inspiration so I thought why not try to tie the cord around the beads to see what would happen.
As you can see three necklaces were born out of that idea.
So basically, this is what I did. First I crocheted a long chain / tie. About a metre long. Then I started working the upper side - I beaded 5 beads and tied 2 knots (to be sure it won't untie) and inserted the (tapestry) needle through the first one so that they would face outwards. I left a little space - about 4-5 cm and beaded 6 (bigger) beads. Tied them too and left a longer space for the center piece for which I beaded 3 small beads, added a big one, and ended by adding 3 small ones. Tied the center too and got this lovely look. Then I repeated the beading / tying for the other side.
I liked how the first one turned out, so I experimented with two others.
I hope you like this project and try it too.
Have a lovely weekend!
