Skill level - beginner
You will be doing Chenille stitch and stringing.
To make this necklace you need:
11/0 seed beads - 2 colors
Center focal beads to be strung - stones, lampworked beads, crystals, druks, or any beads you want. Make sure these have big holes as you will be passing through them 6 times. You can make this section as short or as long as you want - I generally keep mine between 4 and 6 inches.
6mm Jump Rings
Size 10 needle
Nymo D or Fireline or beading thread of choice -
