This Gerbera beaded necklace pattern is also available as a full online workshop. In that, you get this pattern PDF, plus everything demonstrated on video and access to help from me if you get stuck. So, if that seems like a better option than just the pattern download, you can access the workshop here.
The Gerbera beaded necklace pattern requires the following materials:
- Size 11 seed beads
- Delicas in size 11
- Size 15 seed beads
- Lunasoft Cabochons
- Clasp and split rings
- Optional: Zakros Cymbals Elements
- Your choice of beading thread
So, this is a lovely, traditional bead-weaving project that uses materials you probably already have in your stash.
In the workshop, I have explained how to choose a different colour scheme. Plus, given some advice on making bead substitutions, and saving money.
If you need any of these materials, you can check out my beading supplies here.
Experience and Techniques
This is an intermediate level project that uses a range of basic bead-weaving techniques. So, you will be working in:
- Modified Right Angle Weave
- Tubular Peyote
- Tubular Herringbone
As I mentioned, in the workshop, I demonstrate all the techniques on video. So, if they are things that you’re not familiar with, you can learn as you go.
If you choose to purchase the tutorial here, now, you can upgrade to access the workshop in the future if you wish to. When you make the upgrade, you will get a discount so you’re not paying twice for the tutorial. The tutorial explains how to do all that.
About the Gerbera Beaded Necklace Pattern
I designed this project for the summer. I had been working with cabochons and wanted to turn some into flowers. Then, I received some of the Cymbal Elements (if you’re not sure what they are, take a look at this blog). So, I had an idea for incorporating them.
The necklace design just evolved. I found it a very fun and soothing project to make. So, I hope you will enjoy it too.
Even if you decide not to enrol in the workshop, you can still pop over there and watch the introductory video which shows you this necklace in detail.
