Hey beautiful! In today’s beading tutorial I will show you how to make a crystal rondelle and bicone beaded necklace with the contents of the Bargain Bead Box (Jan ’21). Of course, anyone can make this design with the right materials, so I have included a full list, with links, down below. This necklace design begins with a base of right angle weave (RAW) beading stitch, then additional beads are added to fill-in, and frame, the base. I hope you enjoy!
