A Chain Of Flowers

I’m finding Mary Ellen Harte’s book, A Treasury of Beaded Jewelry: Bead Stringing Patterns for All Ages (published in 1999 by Eagle’s View Publishing Company), a great resource!  The patterns provide what amounts to a set of excellent tutorials.  The concepts are suited to adaptation, opening up limitless possibilities.  So, apart from providing attractive projects, it inspires growth as a jewellery designer.

My first project was the Pansy Necklace:

This can, of course, be made in any combination of colours, to suit tastes and bead availability.  This was my first experience in using two beading needles! I’m now working on the Princess Necklace pattern.
