Description

Share

This rose chain necklace is one of my oldest patterns, but still very lovely. Read on to find out more.

Materials

You will be working with size 11 seed beads and 4mm round beads. You can use pearls, or faceted or firepolish beads for the 4mm. These are just going to be the centres of your flowers.

You might like to choose different coloured seed beads, or try a single colour.

As you are learning, it can help if you use different colours for different rows. You can take inspiration from the flowers I created in my TOHO challenge piece for 2020.

You will also need your favourite beading thread and a clasp.

Techniques and Experience

The rose chain necklace uses netting. You will be working in circular netting and creating layers for your design. The PDF tutorial gives you diagrams and explanations of the technique.

I suggest this is suitable for beaders with a little experience. But if you are a beginner who is happy to learn and solve problems as you go, you can give this a try.

About the Rose Chain Necklace

This is one of my earliest jewellery pieces. I made it when I was learning some different netting techniques. We tend to think of netting as a 2D technique. But you can actually create wonderful effects using layers to build the work outwards.

So, in this pattern, you will start learning how to do that.

You can easily alter the length by changing the number of netted roses that you make. You might want to create just a few and then add a string of beads or chain to create the full necklace.

You can also use these flowers to make a bracelet.

So, just decide what you want to make, choose a suitable clasp, and enjoy your beading!
