Pink and Ivory Netted Necklace

About this design:

I started out by making a sampler of the chenille stitch. I liked the look of the pink and ivory - hence this necklace.

    Well this is definitely a WOW design. I’m not a pink fan but it certainly is a perfect choice for your design. You just keep making all of these gorgeous pieces of jewelry with such intricate detailed work. Are most or all of the designs your own creations?

    Yes LRC – the stitch is not my creation – it’s called chenille and is made by taking two different stitches -alternating. It can be changed by using different sizes of beads, different types of beads, etc. I made the sampler – last photo – to try out different beads and see how I liked them. There are lots of you tube vids that explain the stitch.

    I love the subtle beauty if this necklace. You always inspire me to get out my needle and learn new stitches. I just learned the peyote stitch.

    The color combination is so soft & delicate. I like how the gold plays off the pastels and how the toggle & bird can be displayed anywhere one’s heart desires. I enjoy all the different stitches you show us.

    kye -I love the peyote stitch but find it hard to do. Can’t wait to see what you come up with.

    I am by no means a weaver, but I found peyote to be doable, just time consuming. The key is to build the stitch around a wooden dowel.

    Stingray says:

    Forgot to mention, good color mix. It’s nice that it can be worn so many ways.

    Thanks Stingray. I have used dowels with tubular peyote and I find it helpful. It’s the flat – zigzag type – with the increases and decreases that seem to get me mixed up sometimes. And making cubes and other shapes. But I’ll keep trying. Never give up…

    BLE this is wonderful! Your photography is wonderful and professional. I always love your work, beading must take so much time and seems to me to require an eye for detail. This is great!

    Thanks Kristin – love your comment. Yes this type of beading does take time but I love it.
    HH – perhaps my bust does not compliment some of my jewelry – that’s why I usually photograph it 2 ways.

    Robin nursechick says:

    Beady, your display is just fine-you don’t need to change a thing. You do awesome work and a neutral background is always a good choice-easy on the eyes and it draws attention to the piece of jewelry not the bust.
