Beaded Necklace "Daisy"

A simple, but very spectacular necklace made of beads can be made using beads that match the tone or contrast, the main condition is to choose the size of the beads so that the result is a smooth semicircle without distortion and curvature. To do this, we will have to weave a test sample. The work uses Japanese Matsuno and Toho beads, crystal and pomegranate beads, fine needles for Miyuki beads, a string for beadwork. You will also need scissors, wax and very comfortable sorting triangular plates - plastic or metal.

When selecting beads tone at get smooth play of colors, and if different size beads are selected in bright contrasting colors, a necklace will look like a rainbow.You can replace magatama with drop-shaped beads, pendants or even glass beads, the main thing is to observe a gradual transition of the size of beads or beads and the product should look harmonious, not a "quilt". In work we used: 1. Small beads (No. 15) - purple iridescent. 2. Medium beads (No. 11) - dark purple. 3. Octahedral beads (cutting) - “light” matte silver.
4. Cylindrical beads (cutting) - "light" silver. 5. Magatama (drop-shaped beads) - transparent. 6. Crystal matte purple beads and a pomegranate focal bead . The work is carried out by mosaic weaving and consists of 8 half-moon elements. The size of the crescent depends on the volume of the neck and is calculated for a particular product. For our necklace, we collect 28 beads on a strong thin thread with small iridescent purple beads and weave 2 rows.
