This is a popular necklace pattern originally posted at beadsmagic.com, which has been slightly modified. Instead of having the loops overlap and hang freely over eachother, I found the necklace kept a more evenly spaced crisscross pattern if the loops were interlocked with one another, so the pattern below illustrates how to stitch it that way. I made both an off-white and bright-white version of this necklace with clear AB 6mm bicone crystals, pearls (4mm, 6mm and 8mm), and 11/0 seed beads. This would make a stunning bridal or evening necklace; classic and beautiful!
