  • Quick Project Steps

    Start by threading a needle with 2.5 to 3 feet of size 8 beading thread. String seven Super Duo beads, placing an 11/0 seed bead between each. Loop the thread back through several beads to tighten and form the initial circle. Add a 6mm pearl in the center, secured by adjacent seed beads. Integrate Iris Duo beads between each Super Duo, ensuring all face the same direction. Embellish the outer layer with additional 15/0 seed beads for a full floral effect. Use the herringbone stitch technique to create the necklace’s chain, adding a rich texture.
