I wish I could say yes, but I have no idea how to make a tutorial. (I think I'd also need a really expensive program to make a .pdf.)

I think the easiest way to do it is on Youtube.Just make a video of yourself making it.

So, you write excellent fanfics and you create jewellery as well. Is there something you can't do ? :D
Concerning the necklace, my mum would faint just looking at it. Those are her very favourite colours.

How many hours did it take you to finish this necklace?
Reply

AxmxZ Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
About 20, but only because I had the colors picked out and samples made for a previous project.

Wow, if 20 hours is a quick project for you, you must make pretty elaborate art pieces!

Nooo I will never build dragons nor dresses with beads. Your gallery is filled with impressively elaborate pieces.

THIS IS BEAUTIFUL! as a beader myself i would love to know how you did this. is it just a fringe on a stitched band? what sort of thread/wire do you use? and how do you get it to stay so beautifully in shape?
Reply
:iconaxmxz:
AxmxZ Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Thank you! :) It's literally just one row of ladder stitch, then you use that to make the long fringe. Then when the fringe is done, you go back up and put two more brick stitch rows on top of the original ladder.

It's very easy technically. The hard part is the amount of time it takes - 20-25 hours per necklace!

I've looked around, and I haven't found any other necklaces with that kind of design. I might have accidentally invented it. :)

Interesting necklace design. I like how flat and wide it is - it almost looks like a scarf or something made of cloth instead of the typical jewelry.

AxmxZ Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It is a very flat 2D bib, yeah. Definitely a shawl type look, though it only really extends down a few inches.
