Create a colorful necklace using classic cylinder beads, peyote stitch, and tubular herringbone. By changing colors of beads, you can easily switch this summer/fall project into a springtime or even into an everlasting wintertime classic. Diagonal flat peyote stitch is the base for three-dimensional flowers, and by changing the amount of sections you can create different numbers of petals or make a single or double flower.The same technique with a few slight modifications can be used to fashion leaves.You will master tubular herringbone stitch and diagonal peyote stitch. Additional bonus will be an opportunity to play with layers of colors, which make this piece out of ordinary.
