Cheri's Signature

  • Instructions
  • Supplies

Knotting is a technique traditionally used with pearls, but it can make a beautiful statement when used with other types of beads. Cheri added in small Swarovski pearls in this necklace to echo traditional styles, but also added in Swarovski Fine Rocks Tube beads for a more contemporary, sparkling look. She used the Beadalon tin cup knotter tool to perfectly space out each beaded segment in her silk. You can see her make this necklace and see other knotted designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
