This is a necklace I made a while back and I've worn it a lot. It was really simple to make. I saw the "pattern" on a website somewhere with round beads, but I wanted a squared one.





Here's how:

I like the color.  It almost seems purple bronzy and I like that...maybe it is just the pictures.

thanks! Snacker: the beads are an unusual colour; the reflections are not purple.

Very nice!
I really like this kind of shaped beadwork, and I like the colour too. 
A word of caution, though:  I once made some bracelets like these, but as this kind of long bead tends to be made of an really long tube that has been sliced into beads, they have rather raw edges and can end up wearing away the thread when strung in this configuration.  As your necklace lies flat this probably will be less of a problem (not so much friction from constatnt movement), but if anyone's thinking of making these, find some really hardy thread.  Wink

Thanks for the reminder! I used rather thick fishing line and it's held up well. It would probably not go so well with cotton thread, elastic etc!
