Beaded Rope Necklace

Recurring event see all

March 25, 2021 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

“Beaded Rope Necklace”

When we saw this beautiful beaded rope pattern, we knew it would be the perfect compliment to the Venetian glass pieces we’ll have available at our big trunk show and sale this month (click here for more details on the show). In the piece shown above we stitched two pieces of rope and used a blown glass piece as the center focal. It would also make a beautiful wrap bracelet (see below) or lariat necklace.

This piece is designed by Ella Des and is available for purchase on her website: www.ellad2.com.  Ella has generously allowed us to distribute copies of this pattern to participants who attend this class.


Instructor: Laura

Technique: Tubular netting

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.
