This was my second attempt at the Diamond Weave stitch, which as you see, was successful. Rather than proceeding in a linear fashion, I chose to make this a V-shaped necklace. I must have must been half asleep, because I thought I was ordering Red Siam beads (to match the bracelet) – and accidentally ordered Garnet. Rather than let good beads go to waste (I REALLY hate returning what I’ve ordered), I proceeded with my original idea and created this necklace, adding a strategically placed seed bead throughout to give it just a little “pop”. Measuring 17 and 5/8 inches in length, and 3/4 inches wide, the necklace is secured by a 2-strand silver slide bar clasp.
