Notes to Self: Panel necklace

I'm re-doing an existing necklace. It was an Egyptian inspired piece made up of three layers of beaded panels. I've never been happy with the way it hung so I decided to re-do it.

These are my notes on the new improved design. I'm using 'Celtic Knots for Beaded Jewelry' by Suzen Millodot, as reference for my knotwork.

  • re-stitch all the panels; do each separately so as not to lose beads, nor shift colors
  • braid knot between each panel
  • one silver spacer on each side of braid knots
  • necklace: silver three hole spacer, rectangular celtic knot, three hole spacer, possible repeat.
