Beaded Eye Necklace

This intermediate to advanced project details how to create a necklace which mixes a herringbone rope with an unsual method of transfering to peyote stitch to add 'eye beads' along the necklace length.

In addition to the necklace, the instructions contain details on how the project can be adapted to bracelets and even beaded beads.

This 8-page tutorial contains full instructions and tips as well as check lists for all tools, materials and techniques needed to help you shop and plan.


  • size 11 seed beads
  • drop beads
  • beading needle and thread of choice

A knowledge of both herringbone and peyote stitch is needed for this project.

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!

This project was originally published in the January 2009 Beadworkers Guild journal. However these instructions are more detailed with extra diagrams and photos to help you in your beading.

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 on Etsy or here on Bead-Patterns or a paper copy here but if you are within the EU you may be charged VAT.
