    Step 1
    Figure 1




    Figure 2
    Thread your beading needle with a length of beading thread. Use A beads to work beaded netting for the necklace of the desired size, making an odd number of turns (Fig. 1). Attach a clasp to one end of the necklace.

    Using monofilament thread, bead in A and B along the top edge of the necklace (Fig. 2) and attach a clasp to the other end.
    Step 2
    Figure 3


    Find the middle of the netting. Count the 5th scallop to the right from the middle and anchor a length of beading thread to the bead in the centre of the scallop (Fig. 3). Using B, work a double needle right angle weave, 78 units long. In fact its length should be enough to reach the 5th scallop to the left from the middle of the netting. Fix it to the bead in the centre of that scallop and cut off.
