1. Alternate beaded links with hammered metal oval links. The beaded links are based upon Laura McCabe's toggle instructions that can be found in Embellished Beadweaving.
2. Cut a backing to fit the necklace. Stitch the metal links to the inside of the front.
3. Add egding brick stitch all around the outside of the necklace. You can find step-by-step instructions for this stitch in the first chapter of my e-book, which is free!
4. Add picots to the edging (also found in chapter one of the e-book) around all but the bottom center section
where you'll want to add fringe.
5. Add graduated fringe!
Tomorrow, the finished piece
