With Christmas just around the corner we need some fast and easy ideas that we can make for gifts...or for ourselves! Do you have a party to head to? Whip up a nice long necklace in no time...just string, string, string...crimp and done!! An hour or two is all it takes (depending on how long you want it) and the design makes itself...space out your stones with seed beads between and that's it. Phew!


Simply put a length of Soft Flex to just an inch or two longer than your desired necklace length. Using bead stoppers to prevent any from falling off the end (oh no!) pattern out a fab necklace. Use the same number of seed beads between each stone to keep the look cohesive, but feel free to switch up the order of your stones...make it random or make a specific pattern, it's up to you! This is an endless necklace m without a clasp. To finish, bring both ends of Soft Flex through a crimp tube, going past each other (from opposite ends) and crimp! Cover with a crimp cover and you won't even know it's there.

Kate a has a quickie pre-recorded broadcast for us this week, so tune in to get the how-to and get started on your own Patterning With Stones!

Please join us as our worldwide community gathers on Facebook and YouTube at 10:30am Pacific Time on December 8th, 2021. It’s so much fun to go live with us and bead together! After the live broadcast the video will be available above.
