A Netted Donut to match Trellis Necklace

The BeadMavens is a wonderful group of talented beaders, who share their knowledge, ideas and creativity with the rest of us beaders. On Fridays they sometimes publish a free tutorial, courtesy of one of the group's members. Back in March, NEDbeads offered a free tutorial of her beautiful Trellis Necklace for just one day to people who would leave a comment on the BeadMavens blog and sent her an email.

Unfortunately, I was too late and missed the generous free offer by a few hours. A beady friend of mine, who was on time but decided not to make the Trellis Necklace sent me her copy, after she heard how sorry I was to have missed it. I just loved making it!

After completing several sections of the necklace I knew I had to make a focal element to go with it, and I found this donut that was just the right color for the gemstone beads I used to connect the necklace sections. I played around with the traditional netted donut and came up with this design.

So here it is: Trellis Necklace with my Lacy Donut. I think they go together really well, don't you?

If enough people like the donut, I'll be happy to make a tutorial and offer it for free. So please let me know if you are interested.

The excellent tutorial for the Trellis Necklace is on sale on NEDbeads' Etsy shop.

    I could look at your foto for hours, I just love your beading style, thank you also for giving the links and I would like to have a tutorial. The netted donut is such an eyecatcher. The necklace is so nice in its colors and materials used.

  • יצירה מדהימה טלי!!!

    פשוט נפעמת משילוב הצבעים והאיזון הכל כך נכון בתכשיט היפיפה והעדין הזה.

    מאוד אהבתי גם את שרשרת הפריפורם האחרונה שלך. הצבעים נפלאים.

    ובודאי שאם יש לך סבלנות וזמן פנוי אשמח מאוד לנסות את הטוטוריאל של הדונטס המקסים הזה.
