http://theresestreasures59.blogspot.com and Christine Altmiller of http://onekisscreations.blogspot.com/ It is meant to get people stitching. I adore seed bead work so I signed up. The net stitch was required so I will start there.This necklace does not look at all like I started out thinking I would make. I stitched a netted collar many years ago and I wear it often. I went looking in my old Bead and Button magazines for the pattern I had used. I stumbled on a necklace made with beautiful netted motifs by Marilyn K. Lowe in the August 2004 issue. I stitched three of the motifs. Marilyn had small motifs between her larger ones. I saw pearls instead. I stitched a netted tube and attached the motifs to it.I finished the necklace with some fancy chain that I got at a bead show from Funky Hannah's. I chose a snap clasp. I am pleased with how my necklace turned out. Here is a close up of the work. I can see that I need to color the thread attaching the pearls to the tube, oops.
