I got my hands on some bead sets which I had coveted for a while, and these are the first two necklaces I made from those sets. I gave these as prizes in a raffle for Comic Relief. The pendants were made by threading the first bead then knotting at the mid point lengthways. I then passed both ends of the thread through the second bead, so that they crossed in the middle. Knotted at the mid point again and so on. I don't think they are too bad for a first attempt in 20 years!
