I made this necklace for my friend Steph's birthday. The design is Midnight from Japanese Beadwork with Sonoko Nozue and it's understated elegance appealed to me. Also it was an opportunity to use chevron stitch. It uses 2mm Swarovski crystal rounds in jet and size 15 beads in gold and silver. The finished rope was very thin and it was a challenge to source small scale findings. It was a nice pattern to work and is one I might try again.
