This Paisley Duo floral necklace uses a single motif to create a stunning statement. So, let me tell you more about the project.
You are going to be using the following materials for your necklace:
- Size 11 Delicas
- Size 15 seed beads or delicas
- 14mm Rivolis (5)
- Paisley Duo beads (60)
- Crescent beads (90)
- 4mm pearls (60)
- Your choice of beads to make the rope or chain
- Two split rings or closed rings
- Your choice of clasp
- Your favourite beading thread
You have plenty of options when it comes to colouring for this project. I have included the exact bead colours that I used. Then, I have also included details for some alternative colour schemes that I have tried out for the flower motifs.
If all that isn’t enough, don’t worry – I also have an online class that will teach you all you need to know about bead colours. So, I’ve included details of that in the tutorial as well.
Experience and Techniques
Your Paisley Duo floral necklace uses a few different beading techniques, but all in their basic forms. So, this project is suitable for intermediate beaders, and beyond.
I have given you detailed diagrams and step-by-step photos alongside comprehensive written instructions. And, if all that isn’t enough, I have also included a link to a full video tutorial (free) that you can use.
About the Paisley Duo Floral Necklace
This design is something that evolved from a single flower motif I made earlier in 2020. (You can find that pattern here). It has proved to be a very versatile motif that I have turned into a pendant and a beaded box already.
This design is something that you can alter to fit your style and size.
I wanted a choker length necklace as I was matching a specific outfit. But the central focal section would also look great worn at a lower level. You also have many options for the rope.
I chose to make a beaded rope, but you could just as easily suspend this on a string of beads. I have included links to free tutorials to give you a few options.
So, I invite you to enjoy making this your own.
