Red Nightwatch


About this design:

Commssion piece. Wanted something lightweight & airy to wear in AZ on the really hot days, but with significant color. From a distance, I think it looks like numerous strands of tiny seed beads!

Components:

*Cinnamon* Bamboo yarn, LB's Copper cones & lobster clasps.

    Becca W says:

    Hi all – thank you all so much! The ribbon yarn is by Berroco, (.com) and is a printed ribbon yarn made from bamboo. I bought two hanks, one in the red & another in blue/brown. I just took sevral strands, (24), measured out for a 16″ necklace, (about 18 total), wire wrapped one end tight & left a tail to pull through a cone. Made a wrapped loop & then attached a clasp. The whole thing took all of 15 min tops!

    This necklace is great! I thought it was seed beads to until I read it was yarn. It is beautiful and looks like you spent more than 15 minutes. I think you will get a lot of compliments on this one when you wear it.
