Totally Tubular Necklaces Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Our Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blends are a great option for making your own beaded beads. The colors are perfectly matched, so you can start designing right away! Cynthia used peyote stitch to create the beaded beads that decorate these necklaces. See even more inspiration for beaded beads in this Artbeads Cafe episode.

Rainbow Beaded Bead Leather Necklace:

Step one:
Make a beaded bead with the Artbeads Rainbow Designer Seed Bead Blend using the even-count peyote stitch. This beaded bead is 30 beads wide. It includes seven rows of peyote stitch.

Step two:
Lay your peyote stitch strip under the center of the 16-inch 3mm black leather necklace. You are going to stitch the ends of the peyote strip together around the necklace. The ends should interlock, making it easy to weave together. Cynthia teaches you how to do this in this Artbeads Cafe episode.

Go Team Beaded Bead Snake Chain Necklace:

Step one:
Make a beaded bead with the Artbeads Go Team Designer Seed Bead Blend using even-count peyote stitch. This beaded bead is 20 beads wide. It includes seven rows of peyote stitch.

Step two:
You can either lay your peyote stitch strip under the silver-plated 18-inch round snake chain necklace and stitch the ends together around the necklace or stitch the ends together without the necklace and slide it on after it's tubular.

Driftwood Beaded Bead Cable Chain Necklace:

Step one:
Make a beaded bead with the Artbeads Driftwood Designer Seed Bead Blend using even-count peyote stitch. This beaded bead is eight beads wide. It includes nine rows of peyote stitch.

Step two:

Geode Beaded Bead Necklace:

Step one:
Make a beaded bead with the Artbeads Geode Designer Seed Bead Blend using even-count peyote stitch. This beaded bead is eight beads wide. It includes seven rows of peyote stitch.
