Go on a field trip with Lisa as she sources vintage beads in her favorite bead shop. This simple necklace combines an unusual variety of beads, from brass to coconut to plastic. No jewelry tools required, just a love of exploring color and trust that working without a plan can lead to exciting color and texture combinations.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Tools: Scissors
- a tray or surface for your beads (so they won't roll on the floor) Materials: Herringbone vertebrae
- snake or African trading beads (the more the better!)
- beads from old necklaces
- beaded "finds" like belts or coasters
- smaller brass beads (optional)
- waxed cord or leather cord Tip: beads should have relatively large holes
