Susie’s Serpentine Necklace

December 23, 2020 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

“Susie’s Serpentine Necklace”

This versatile and comfortable necklace is stitched using tubular herringbone with stations of various beads to create an slinky, undulating look. You’ll learn how to take your tubular herringbone to the next level by using “increases” or “stitch in the ditch” techniques to add those special beads.

This piece is an original design by Laura will be distributed to participants who attend this class. The pattern is also available for sale individually for those wishing to stitch it on their own.

Instructor: Laura

Technique: Tubular herringbone with increases

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.
