Hidden Herringbone

A great project to experiment with size, shape and colour.

This easily beaded herringbone rope hides a secret - the clasp is hidden amongst the beadwork so the necklace can be turned around with any chosen section being the front.

This 7-page tutorial contains all the diagrams, photos and tips and tricks you'll need to create your own colourful version.

All tutorials contain full instructions and tips as well as check lists for all tools, materials and techniques needed to help you shop and plan.

Materials:

  • An assortment of beads such as size 11 seed beads, cubes, triangles, fire-polished, hexes, rounds, rice beads…
  • A length of satin cord
  • A strong magnetic clasp – not too large

A basic knowledge of ladder and herringbone stitch is needed.

I love to support and encourage individuals who make beadwork so please feel free to use anything you make from these instructions as gifts or to sell to support your bead buying habit!

A more basic version of these instructions appeared in issue 22 of Bead magazine.

Sadly due to EU VAT regulations I cannot sell this as an instant download but the file will be sent to you asap. If you would like it instantly you can purchase it here but if you are within the EU you will be charged VAT.
