- Part 1 shows how to create the hook and eye clasp.
- Part 2 demonstrates the plait style weave, in particular how to trap the beads so that they stay where they are supposed to within the plait.
- Part 3 demonstrates how to create the Celtic style drop/pendant
I have split the tutorial into these three parts for a couple of reasons, mainly the whole tutorial would be far too long and you would probably nod off half way through! but also because some of you may already know how to do some of the stages and may want to skip straight to the pendant part. Without fancy camera shots and lighting it is quite difficult to show this technique, but I hope I have managed to compensate with thorough narration! (you always have a mute button if my incessant talking gets on your wick!!) If you feel I have missed something or you still have a question regarding this technique please get in touch via my facebook page. Please also share the creations you make, I and others would love to see them. I am also looking for more tutorial requests so again please send them in via my facebook page. Happy creating! Gemma.x
