Spring in Kara Dag Necklace
|Work the basic row around A beads (Fig. 1), using an even number of J seed beads. Go through the last bead row for several times, pulling tightly on the thread. Continue beading in circular peyote stitch (Fig. 2). The number of the rows depends on the thickness of your cabochon. There are two rows in J, one row in L, one row in J and one more row in O in the original design. Repeatedly run through the last bead row, pull the thread taut.|
|Embroider the jewellery stone. Bead the basic row in I around the circle (Fig. 2). Then bead in I, J, O (Fig. 4). Go through the last bead row more than once, pulling tightly on the thread.|
Bead the basic edge row in M (Fig. 5).
Embroider the edge in O, working between points 1-2 and 5-6, according to Fig. 6. Then embroider the edge in the following sequence: 1O, 1K, 1O (repeat five times for the left and for the right sides) between points 3-4 (Fig. 6).
Work in J, H, K, F, G between points 1-6 (Fig. 7). Attach A bead at the bottom of the necklace, using O seed beads.
|Connect all the elements together by B, D, E, F altering them by J (see the photograph). Attach strings of C, F, D to the jumprings of the side elements at the top, repeating the pattern, given in Fig. 8 twice. Attach a clasp, going through the jumprings (Fig. 8).|
