About the Kit...
the Etruscan Vine Necklace, I combine some
bead stringing with some bead-woven netting
stringing involves sliding beads on a stringing
material, adding pendant drops as a design
element, and finishing off the piece by attaching
a clasp assembly.
(bead weaving) is one of the oldest forms
of beadwork. It is done with needle and thread.
It involves adding three or more beads, one
or more of which are joined to the previous
row, and creates an open space.
Etruscan Vine Necklace consists of a cascading
series of pendant drops moving outward from
a simple choker strand and captured within
a broad netted grid.
trick for combining bead stringing and bead
weaving techniques is to create “jumping
off points” from the bead strung piece,
off of which to beadweave.
beads used include Czech glass angel wings
and fire polish beads, Austrian
crystal bicone beads (Series 5301), gold filled
beads, and Japanese Miyuki glass seed beads
and delica beads, including some 24KT delica
beads. The piece is strung on FireLine. The
necklace is meant to be worn as a choker,
and has an adjustable hook and eye clasp,
allowing the length to vary between 15"
and 17 1/2".
