I wanted to make a bib-style necklace that would look nice with a strapless wedding dress. My original plan was to dangle a hodge podge of different sizes and shapes of pearls and crystals from chain. After I gathered my crystal and pearl selections, though, it became immediately obvious that these powder rose pearls and white opal AB crystals were meant to be together! So I eliminated all the other colors and began a right-angle-weave pattern instead. I really love the way these two colors look together, but you can use any 4mm bicone beads and 8mm round beads that you want. You can change up the chain and clasp to match your beads as well. If you are new to right-angle-weave
, you may want to view our instructional video
that covers the technique.
