I really enjoy the way Liz repeats steps so I can get the beading rhythm in my head too.

Liz is brilliant! She gives great instructions and the camera work is spot on so that you can see exactly what she is doing.

Very pretty necklace with a lot of options to create unique variations. This piece is so versatile! I love that it can be worn as one long strand or can be doubled up to create a layered, multi-strand necklace. Additionally, just learning the herringbone twist & the spiral beading techniques will be valuable for incorporating into any other beaded pieces that you make.
