From the Editor

Seed beads: what’s not to like? They’re small, they’re pretty, and they’re versatile. You can find them on clothing, purses, jewelry, and even tapestries. They look absolutely stunning when you string enough of them together. Talk about power in numbers. There’s so much you can do with them stylistically as well. You can find seed beads on a kindergartener’s friendship bracelet or on a wedding dress that costs thousands of dollars. Seed beads have endless crafting possibilities.

Seed beads originated in Asia, Egypt, and the Mediterranean in 2400 B.C. Beads were mass-produced in Italy during the Middle Ages. It seems nothing happens in Italy without happening dramatically, and the bead making industry’s story is certainly big-screen worthy. Venice was the hub of bead making in Italy, with a monopoly on the business for almost 600 years. The glassmakers that influenced the craft were very secretive about their techniques, and any who betrayed those secrets faced a death penalty. Despite their dramatic history, seed beads are simple and lovely adornments for jewelry and clothes.

This is just what I needed. I have so many seed beads and needed something to make with them. This is very pretty and the directions are written very well. It would be easy for even a beginner to follower. I can think of so many color combos too. I can have one to match all of my outfits. Thank you for such a great project.

Easy to follow directions result in a stylish and professional-looking necklace.

I have been wanting a pattern for this particular necklace. I have a couple, but they are too short, i wanted them longer because I am tall and like the longer length necklaces.
