This is the necklace that our member, Mary, will be presenting at the July meeting. I apologize for the “blurry” quality of the photo….but you get the idea. Mary did not photograph her sample and sold it….so this is a thumbnail from the Beadwork site.
Saint Petersburg Stitch Necklace
5 grams size 11 seed beads (Color A)
5 grams size 8 seed beads (Color B)
10 grams 4.5 mm flat square 2-hole beads (Miyuki Tila Beads work best)
9 8 X 10 mm top drilled briolettes
2 split rings
Braided beading thread (Fireline)
Bring basic beading supplies: beading mat, scissors, size 12 needles, etc.)
I used 2 complimentary colors for my necklace. Color A and the Tilas were the same color but of different values. Color B and the briolettes were the second color and can be of the same value. PS: value means light, medium or dark shade of color.
Last time I was at Beads Etc. Lynette had both the Tila beads and the Briolettes
See you at the meeting!
