Argyle Socks

About this design:

I know - another seed bead tube. Yawn. Yet, so fun to make. This is a Russian spiral. I like the way the large seed beads go in one direction and the tiny green ones in the other direction. Reminded me of argyle. I made the pendant opening large enough to slip off the necklace. Herringbone stitch on the pendant top.


Seed Beads - 8/0 in black, blue and transparent pink/peach. 15/0 seed beads in light green. 5x12 mm rectangles, pink/peach glass round faceted beads, silver colored clasp

    I’ve seen Argyle socks, Argyle sweaters but never Argyle jewelry. What a novel idea. Your Argyle pattern is beautifully crafted with great color. Do you also do plaids and checks? :D

    Wow! This is my favorite one so far. I love the pattern and colors you chose. Do you follow a pattern with your pieces? Your right it does look like argyle pattern. It’s beautiful!

    Thank you ladies. This design is actually easy to do once you get started. It’s very repetitive. Potomac Beads has a nice tutorial. LRC – I don’t know if I can do plaids and checks but maybe I’ll try. I think checks would work with the herringbone stitch.

    Spiral ropes are so cool! I love looking at your work. The title cracks me up but it does look like argyle. Wonderful work!
