Anemone Necklace

About this design:

I'm new to beading, so I am trying out various stiches. I believe this one is called anomone (SP?). There are a number of youtube videos showing how to do it. This is the first beading necklace I've made. I still have to add a clasp, but am debating between a lobster or a toggle clasp. Any suggestions?


Dollar store beads, size 6 and 11.

    TOGGLE! It is much easier to use. :)
    Love the unique design.

    Just make sure you have enough give at the ends to toggle easily–if the beadwork is too thick it can be a pain. I LOVE the colors in this. The anemone stitch I’ve seen looks different, but is the same basic concept as yours. Will be very cool when done!

    Thanks ladies for your comments. Elaine, this is a very easy stich, perfect for beginners. I learned the stitch online on Youtube. I used cheap dollor store beads so it didn’t cost much to do it either.

Add your thoughts!
