Aloha Necklace

November 25, 2020 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

“Aloha Necklace”

This necklace was inspired by the gorgeous Czech glass Hawaiian flower and sun beads used at the centerpiece. The tubular design of the straps is versatile and can even be stitched without the centerpiece as a standalone rope, or a necklace that you can hang a pendant from.

Original design by Laura Cole. Pattern available for purchase for those interested in the pattern only and not attending a class by clicking here.


Instructor: Laura

Technique: Tubular bead weaving

Difficulty Level: Intermediate 1
If you’ve taken a few beginner classes, are starting to get comfortable with the language of beading and feel ready for the next step, this is the perfect class for you. This project will be just a little more complex than the beginner pieces, but still great for new beaders.

$10 Multi-class package price
Multi-class packages are $80 for 8 classes. Packages are good for a 6-month period, starting from the date of first use. Packages can be used on most of the classes offered, however specialty and guest instructor classes regularly priced higher than $15 do not qualify.
