Elegant pathways

Fire-polished beads mimic the color and sparkle of cut gemstones in a design stitched on the diagonal and accented with teardrop edging.

[1] Cut 2 yd. (1.8m) of Power Pro or Fireline, and thread a needle on each end.

[2] Pick up an 11» seed bead and center it on the thread. With the right-hand needle, pick up a color A 4mm fire-polished bead, a 15°, a tear drop bead, a 15°, and a color B 4mm fire-polished bead (figure 1, a-b).

[3] With the left needle, pick up an f. an 1 Is, and an A (d-e).

[4] Cross the needles through an 11° (b-c and e-f).

[5] Following the pattern for the tof the 4

(figure 2), continue stitching for the desired length of the necklace. With each stitch, the right needle picks u; 4mm, a 15°, a teardrop, a 15°, and

4mm. The left needle picks up a 4mm, an 11°, and a 4mm. Then both needles cross through an 11°. [6] Secure the thread with a concealed square knot, p. 64, in the last 11° picked up (figure 1, point g). Sew through the beadwork, and tie a concealed square knot as indicated in figure 1 by the double-triangle symbol. Trim the thread.
