People can't stop fondling this tactile necklace with its mass of drapey, fluid fringe.

Complete the herringbone base first, and then beginning at one end, start adding fringe, which gets lusher, longer and fuller the closer you get to the centre front. And then of course the fringe tapers off as it reaches the other end.

One of my students decided to make a bracelet instead; the instructions do not describe this option, but in general you would taper up VERY QUICKLY so that the bulk of the bracelet has the lushest fringe, and then taper down again equally quickly. Or not - the fringe could easily be the same length throughout.

The closure is a herringbone toggle with a loop - easy to make, and very secure.

There is no such thing as too many colours of fringe beads and drop beads - the more the merrier! I used about seven different fringe bead colours, and three or four drop bead colours, but how many colours you use is entirely up to you.

If you're a Fireline fan, I'd recommend not using it for the fringe, though feel free to use it for the necklace base. It's a little stiff, and so interferes with the drapiness of the fringe - I'd recommend something like Nymo, C-Lon, SoNo, Silamide or other soft nylon beading threads.

To make this necklace, you will need the following:

Size 11 seed beads
Japanese fringe beads
4x6mm Czech drop beads
Your favourite beading needle
Your favourite beading thread
