Bijoux Anciens – Downloadable PDF Pattern

(1 customer review)



The name of this necklace literally translates as “Ancient Jewelry” which is a reference to the antique cut beads (also called English cuts) used a focal points. Accompanying the antique cuts are superduos and seed beads in sizes 11/0 and 8/0. Designed to be worn with the Rustic Rope, one of my free patterns, and using similar techniques, this necklace is more intermediate level than advanced beginner. Sections of embellishment using Superduos and 8/0s break up the monotony of the herringbone rope. If you need an alternative bead, you can use any 10mm round bead in their place.

Techniques: Two-ladder tubular herringbone stitch, netting, peyote stitch

Intensity: Low Intermediate (2 out of 5 stars)

What You’ll Need:
10mm Czech Antique Cut beads
Size 11/0 seed beads
Size 15/0 seed beads
Superduo beads
Your preferred beading thread
Size 12 beading needles
