It might be frustrating when you don't have enough beads for a full beaded design, but there are other options for finishing your project. Cynthia demonstrates how silk ribbon can make a wonderful option for finishing looks in this necklace design. She paired ribbon with Dakota Stones gemstone beads and Swarovski bicones. You can see more ideas for how to finish jewelry when you don't have enough beads in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
