Monthly Bead Jewelry Project

Here's a different yet easy jewelry project to try: Hand knotting pearls...

I used dyed red baroque pearls to knot this necklace.

Enjoy knotting your own pearl necklace in this How to Knot Pearls Tutorial. It's a two-part tutorial. This is part one which will link you to part two.
