Celestial Amethyst Tila Choker
The words heavenly or divine just don’t come close to describing this necklace. Satiny Tila beads mix with round silver and amethyst seed beads to create a “halo” for the neck that curves naturally and lays comfortably on the skin. Amethyst Swarovski bicone beads punctuate and shape the design with a sparkle that’s sure to flatter anyone. This fairly simple beading project can be completed in about two hours.
step 1 - Cut a length of beading thread to measure 2 yards. Add a stop bead 10” from the end.
step 11 - Finish the necklace by working the needle through the beads, creating at least four half hitch knots. Trim off the excess thread. Remove the stop bead and thread that tail into the needle. Work through the beads creating half hitch knots.
This necklace doesn’t lay in a flat straight strand on the work surface, it curves. Here’s why - The large silver beads take up more space than the two seed beads between the Tila beads forcing the work to curve slightly. This makes it an ideal design for a choker because it forms a natural circle at the base of the neck without twisting or shifting.
