Taught by Liz Smith
In this class, beading expert Liz will show you how to make a chic, versatile necklace that can be worn in any direction. The necklace begins with a beautiful bead-weaving section, comprised of both twisted spiral stitch and herringbone stitch with silver and gold beads. After the bead-weaving is complete, gold and silver chains are attached, and the necklace is finished with decorative clasps. You can make the necklace short or long, in vibrant colors or metallic hues—the choice is up to you. It's easy to customize, fun to make, and even more fun to wear.
