pretty purple scallops

These little 2-hole sliders make it easy to put together a double strand necklace. You could also use them to make multi-strand  bracelets.

What creates the scallops is that you use more beads on the lower strand than on the upper. You can design them to be as shallow or as deep as you’d like, just be sure to create proportions that are pleasing.

The little heart pendant is a whimsical touch that you can leave off if you want. Keep in mind that if you add a very heavy pendant, it will change the shape of your scallop.

Enjoy the video and happy creating!

  1. Wow, I love that! Didn’t even see the heart at first, so it’s probably not essential. 😀

  2. BTW, I was able to view the video, but youtube says it’s unlisted.
