If you can't find beads around town, go on eBay, search beads, United States only, unless you don't mind waiting a month for them. Then I click free shipping and dozens of sites come up. I always check the profile to see remarks. If their rating is lower than 99.4 I keep going. I have been using eBay for over 12 years and trust me, I learned. You will find these beads and it such a great and easy pattern, why not make it in various colors?

If I were going to adapt this pattern to a necklace, I would make the beaded portion twice as long, and another 1/3 length of plain chain until you reach your desired chain length. That way the beaded portion will lie flat on your neck.

Where can I buy the materials? I've searched your site, Lima Beads, etc. and I got no results matching anything close to what's required for this project. I'm looking for the 3-Strand Spacer beads and can't find them. Any help will be appreciated.

I found the spacers at Michaels.

Hi everyone, I would imagine that to make this bracelet into a necklace all you would need to do is repeat the pattern until you have the length that you need to fit around the neck then finish it off the same as this pattern. This would make a beautiful choker type necklace.

I tried that with a similar pattern and it just kept getting tighter and tighter and didn't want to lay right. It was making almost a coil affect. Any other ideas? I'm new to jewelry making and I'm not afraid to try things, but I have a beautiful pink necklace coil I don't know how to fix.

To: i luv 2 cook you may be pulling your thread too tight.

I'm disappointed that I have not seen an answer to my comment about adapting this pattern for a necklace yet. If it can't be done, then please tell me that, don't leave me hanging wondering. Thanks.

What size bicone/

I would like to know if this pattern could be adapted for a necklace and how would I do that. I love the pattern and really want a necklace to match. Thanks.

I would love to know the answer to this question also,

I just wanted to update my comments about making this bracelet into a necklace. I ended up taking almost all the spacers out of the pink necklace I was working with. To make it the exact way the bracelet was made would not and did not work. I eliminated all but 6 spacer bars and the patterned changed completely. I would have loved the necklace to look like the bracelet, but I used the same beads and it looks good together as a set. But making it a choker would literally choke me, so it didn't happen.
