|The double necklace
The double structure of this necklace is emphasized by the long, silvered tubes that break with the classic rounded form typical of necklaces.
We will use two nylon threads which will be brought together halfway up the necklace.
Begin with the lower part of the necklace, placing each tube and seed bead in symmetrical fashion. Stop with two large beads which will form the join.
Now make the upper, shorter part : the same tubes are used but the diameter of each bead separating the tubes is now smaller.
The double bead/tube bracelet
This bracelet is made in the same way, using seed beads and tubes.
|In this model, the loop is decorated with three 'fan' beads which create depth and add originality.
Start by threading the beads, always keeping the design symmetrical, for the "loop" part of the necklace.
Form the loop. For kids, it's easier to tie a knot to fix the loop. This knot is then hidden with Two large beads.
Repeat the same sequence of beads after the loop tie as that used just before it - this creates a double symmetry.
Keep threading the seed beads then finish the necklace as described earlier.
