This necklace coordinates nicely with the Alexia Bracelet from my last post. It requires the same beads (11/0 seed beads and Czech #3 bugle beads), but the 11/0 seed beads must be large enough so that their length is the same (or greater than) the width of the bugle bead. Like the Alexia Bracelet, this necklace is light-weight, and the twisted silver-lined bugle beads give it some sparkle and depth of color. Always use Fireline when working with bugle beads so as not to sever the thread. In the examples below, I used Dyna-Mite seed beads (from firemountaingems.com), and twisted Czech #3 bugle beads from Hobby Lobby. I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!
