    Learn how to use netting and fringe techniques with 2 needles and threads to create a beautiful necklace in this PotomacBeads tutorial. The Creeper Vine Necklace uses different shapes of Czech glass beads to make a fun design full of variety.
    1. Put a size 12 needle onto about 4 feet of DragonThread. Add a stop bead leaving a 10cm tail. Pick up an EVA bead with the arrow pointing down. Add an IrisDuo bead, going through the left hole with the puffed side up. Pick up two 15/0 seed beads, an 11/0 and 2 more 15/0s. Bring the needle down through the second holes of the IrisDuo and EVA beads. Add another 11/0 seed bead.
    2. Watch the Creeper Vine Necklace tutorial to follow along with Tereza as she guides you through the process of creating her beaded necklace pattern.
    3. Take off the stop bead and add a Claspgarten clasp with seed beads. Sew through the IrisDuo and EVA bead at the end of the project. Reinforce the loop. Knot the thread and sew down the project a little. Burn the loose edge with a Thread Zap. Add the other end of the clasp to the other side of the project.
    The Creeper Vine Necklace is a fun fringe necklace to design. Experiment with other 2-hole beads for a unique piece of handmade jewelry.
