I beaded a necklace for my aunt (and one for myself), but pearls were only accents so I really did't get a chance to see what my knotting skills were really like. Well, for my next project I knotted up a choker strand of these lovely pondslime pearls (with a few vermeil spacer beads thrown in for interest). I wanted this one to be a choker, so I think I may have enoughp pearls left over for a bracelet too! (If I throw in a few spacers :) )

I love the colors on these pearls, just lovely!





So...experienced knotters, what do you think, did I do alright???

Thank you!!! I'm overall pretty pleased with how it turned out, I was able to get the knotting tighter than I had expected. The vermeil beads are a little "shifty" where I put them back to back, but I don't think anyone will notice, and I think it looks good from a distance. I fear that I am going to need to change my screen name to "needsmorepearls" :eek:

I was fooled by your close-up shots into thinking they were honkers, then surprised by the dainty necklace. It looks fantastic on you - just perfect. Thanks for sharing it. :cool:

Very, very nice. Normally I wouldn't be too keen on spacers, but those gold ones look lovely with the colour of those pearls. Well done!
