Item details

Braided Circle Necklace

Concentric circular brick stitch is fun and incredibly versatile. This is a fun and sparkly necklace that can be done in any combination of bead shapes and colors. It is challenging enough to engage a seasoned beader, but easy enough for a beginner. The bead sizes listed in the directions are suggestions, and can be changed out for any size seed beads or even other small beads. Why did I choose size 8/0’s and 11/0’s? I don’t know. They looked good together like that. Does the ring have to be braided? Nope. Do the spikes have to be 3x4mm rondelles? Absolutely not. Experiment and find fun alternatives.
