ETRUSCAN VINE NECKLACE - LEARNING OBJECTIVES
BW2-NT-01
INTERMEDIATE LEVEL
-- Bead Weaving Sequence
-- Lesson: Mixing Techniques; Netting; Bead Stringing
-- Necklace


This Etruscan Vine Necklace pattern was influenced by pottery and jewelry designs from the Tuscany region of Italy around 300 B.C. through 500 A.D. In this fun project, we learn how to prepare a bead-strung row of beads so that we may bead-weave off it with beautiful and elegant netting. We discuss concerns and issues involved with mixing techniques, as well as some strategic Do's and Don'ts.
