Necklace, 10 Around

Phew, this one tested my beading abilities. But that's what learning is about, right? At one stage I got a bit casual and stopped referring to the printed pattern, just watching the bead patterns emerge. That was fine until there was a mistake. Then I couldn't find my place on the pattern and couldn't work out what mistake I'd made in the threading! I had to unravel to a 'known point'. After that I was more careful, keeping track of where I was on the pattern and checking the beading regularly. The pattern came from L Beads, here's a link. I think it was worth the effort I had to put in!


  1. Absolutely worth the effort ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’–
    Is it possible to alter the number of beads (girthwise) in the same rope, with slight tweaking of pattern if required ? Eg. Starting with an 8 bead pattern and moving to 10 and back to 8
    Your image above gave me this thought.

    1. I think so. But beyond my capabilities to alter a pattern in that way at the moment. I tried to show different parts of the pattern, but it distorted the look of the necklace somewhat.

    2. Far from 'distort', I think your necklace looks superb and 'deliberate' ๐Ÿ˜„! ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™
      I get that transitioning between beads can be quite an advanced skill. You have been extremely diligent in your experiments ๐Ÿ˜
