I made this as a gift for a friend who had been feeling sad and stressed lately. To be honest, I had been feeling the same, so this project was a win-win situation: I got to make something that took the stress off my mind, and she got a surprise to brighten up her week. The design popped into my head from something I'd seen before (Perhaps a book? I don't recall anymore..) and I thought it'd be the perfect design to make something teal, the friend's favorite color. Anyhow, it turned out lovely, and we're both feeling a bit better now.

Step 1: Materials

  • seed beads (I used size 11, teal and light sapphire.)
  • thread for beading
  • string for sliding closure (I used some rattail string.) OR clasps
  • thin wire OR beading needles (I didn't have needles small enough to fit in my beads so I just used 28 gauge wire. You could also just savage some thin wire from wire ribbons or twist ties..)
  • scissors
  • glue/lighter for singeing
<p>Beautiful and not over my skill level! I have so many seed beads left over from other projects, this will be great to use up my stash. Love the way you intertwine the loops.</p>
<p>Thanks and good luck!</p>
