Let's try this out for size, shall we?? I created this unique necklace using some  of Gardanne Beads lampwork glass headpins, some peanut shaped seed beads, a little waxed linen cording, and some silk cording. The tutorial is available in my etsy shop. I created the instructional PDF and will email it within 24-48 of purchase.  The price is $4.99.

Technique: Stringing, Wirework, knotting
Skill: Intermediate

This pattern can be recreated and made with your own unique flair by using different colors and various headpins and seed beads and ribbons/cording.

  1. Beautiful!! The silk cording is such a beautiful color. I'm sure you will sell quite a few of these tutorials. I thought about getting one. But it will have to wait for later. :) Have a wonderful Tuesday!!

  2. That necklace s fabulous! I would not have thought to use the headpins like that -- genius n your part. I know this will sell like hotcakes and I'm looking forward to more tutorials.

  3. Sweet! Loving your new banner too!

  4. Thanks Lorelei! I'm back from Bead Fest too so my gardannebead.etsy.com shop will reopen on August 29th with all new stock. Shoot me a message if you need some of the round style headpins used in this necklace, and I always take custom orders.
    Thanks again Lorelei, and great seeing you at Bead Fest.

  5. Very cool! Looks like it would be fun to wear and the color possibilities are endless!
