I made these several years ago- well, I made at least 5 of them several years ago and these are the ones I kept for myself.




They just remind me of those classy necklaces that the stars wore in the golden age of Hollywood  Cheesy



And they're not hard to make at all. Basically, it's two passes with the needle, or two threads, depending on how comfortable you feel. if you use two threads, you can always add on another section or two if you want to lengthen the necklace. You can also alter the number of seed beads in each section to make the triangle shape wider or more narrow, or to make it longer or shorter  Smiley

Here's a close up to look off of for the tutorial.


Mini Tute:
Need: thread, 11/0 seed beads, accent beads (pattern calls for 4 mm).

silver lined beads and crystals version (mine has 17 sections, but the original pattern had 18)
Base strand: 1 ab, 4 sb, 1 ab, 4 sb etc.
to make drops: go through 1st ab, add 11 sb, 1 ab, 1 sb. Pass through ab again and add another 11 sb. Then skip the next crystal on the base strand and pass through the next one so that there's an accent bead centered above the drop (remember to check the picture).

Black version:
There's only 2 small differences: I used 2 different accent beads and upped the number of seed beads, so the base strand pattern is altered.
b=bicone (crystal), r=round

1 r, 5 sb, 1 c, 5 sb, 1 r, 5 sb...   ending with a r.

Have fun looking classy  Cheesy
