Welcome!

Hey beautiful! In today’s beading tutorial I will show you how to make a design that I am calling the Netted Bicone and Herringbone Necklace. It’s a spin-off of the bracelet tutorial I shared about a month ago. This necklace combines a the basic beading stitch, herringbone, with the look of netting around sparkly bicone beads.

Whether you decide to use Swarovski, Preciosa, or Chinese crystal 4mm bicone beads, this necklace is sure to sparkle delicately on its wearer’s neck. The design in the tutorial comes to about 18″; 6″ of beadwork, and two 6″ lengths of chain.

The necklace is a spin-off of the bracelet design; however. I was inspired to create the bracelet while playing around with new design possibilities that incorporate the flat herringbone bead weaving stitch. At the beginning of the flat herringbone 101 video tutorial, I showcased several different examples of flat herringbone designs. The basic beading stitch has so many different possibilities; the look changes drastically when using different types of beads, bead sizes, and the width of rows.

More herringbone-inspired designs will come in the near future. Specifically, the piece that I shared with the 3mm bugle beads and CzechMates two-hole Tile beads, in particular, will be coming next month. I hope you enjoy this tutorial, and feel free to let me know if you gave it a try!
