Materials Used To make The  Project

Quick Project Steps

Prepare Your Materials: Gather all beads and tools listed in the materials section.
Start the Herringbone Base: Using 8/0 seed beads, create a tubular herringbone base. Begin with a length of thread, adding a stop bead to prevent beads from falling off.
Add Colors for the Paintbrush Effect: Incorporate 11/0 seed beads between the herringbone stitches to introduce colors. Progress by increasing and then decreasing the number of 11/0 seed beads used between the 8/0 seed beads to form a paintbrush tip effect.
Joining and Finishing: After reaching the desired length, remove the stop bead and weave both ends together seamlessly. Secure the threads and trim any excess.
Customization: Feel free to adjust the length, color scheme, or bead sizes as per your preference to make the necklace uniquely yours.
