This is a trial-run for an idea I have to show off a focal bead. I'm not sure I have the right seed beads on hand for that project, so it may have to incubate a bit longer. I think this one works pretty well on its own merits.

My noose still needs some work. I"m thinking I should work the increase before the split a bit more gradually. I worked two beads into each stitch and then did one more row before splitting. A more gradual increase should give a smoother look.


  1. Lovely Lariat. This is a great way to show off a focal bead. Your beadwork is phenomenal. <3

  2. lovely, I can't see where you say that it needs improvements, you made a lovely necklace
