Bib Necklace

The bead shop in town is closing down. That's a shame, but it's also an excuse to go and buy some interesting beads, like the ones I used here. I experimented with working the dangles downwards and finishing with a loop-tatted-ring as explained by Tatting Fool, but they didn't hang well. It's really essential to take both threads through the big bead. So I started each dangle at the bottom with a beaded ring, took the threads through the big bead and then made split rings, before finishing with a ring with a picot so that I could join the dangles onto the split-ring-braid.


  1. Looks great. It would make a lovely Christmas tree decoration too. Yummy.

  2. I must to decide to work with beads...
    the necklace look great with this beads!

  3. thanks everyone. I hope I can inspire you, night!
