Beaded Lily necklace - part two



Last week, I posted the first half of this tutorial plus the materials and tools list, so if it seems you are missing something here, you are!  Visit Beaded Lily necklace - part one.  



7. Using one of the tails, pick up 4 size 11/0 seed beads and stitch through the focal bead.  On the other side, pick up 4 size 11/0 seed beads and stitch through the closest 6/0 in the next rope. 



8. Pick up 3 more 11/0s, and stitch back through the last size 11/0 from the other group, through the focal bead, and through the first size 11/0 on the first side.  Pick up 3 more 11/0s and stitch through the closest 6/0.  Follow the thread path and restitch the entire thing.  Work the thread tail through several more beads down the rope to anchor it.  Clip the end. 


9. Using the tail on the other side of the focal bead, retrace the thread path at least once more, working from the other direction.  If you can do it twice without the beads being too full of thread, that will be even better.  Work the thread tail through several more beads down the rope to anchor it.  Clip the end. 

10. Repeat this procedure with the other two sets of tails and focal beads.



11. Cut two pieces of Soft Flex, each about 8 to 12 inches long, depending upon how long you want your finished necklace.  Loop the end of one piece through the size 6/0 seed bead at one end of the rope, add a few size 11/0 seed beads to both sides and string them through a size 6/0 and a crimp.  Flatten the crimp.




12. Slide on a large holed crow bead to cover the crimp.  Add enough crow beads alternating with 6/0 seed beads until it is long enough to suit you.  Use additional 11/0 seed beads and a crimp to attach one part of the toggle.  Repeat on the other side.

Thank you for the tutorial, Cyndi. I love the final result.
