  • Illusion necklace

    Hi guys

    I am looking for instructions on how to make an illusion necklace. Not the one where you crimp either sides of your beads along the wire but the one where you don't need crimps and it involves beading a stone on a single wire then beading it on 2 wires(or something like that) so that the beads kinda stay in place. It's usually made with glass chips too,don't know if that helps but any advice appreciated.
    Tried you tube but couldn't find any clips,they all involve crimps.

      Hi,

      There is a project similar to what you are looking for in the Oct/Nov issue of bead magazine using pearls.

      Hope this helps

        I didn't realise it would be such a big picture!

        Basically...Wire no1 goes through the top wire no2 goes through the bottom, then no1 goes through the bottom of the next bead and no2 goes through the top of this bead it alternates like this until it is the right length. You can adapt this pattern with different beads once you've tried it a few times!
        I've had a nearly a bottle of wine! So if this doesn't make sense, please send me a private message in the morning and remind me! so that i can explain it in clear english! lol

            A variation on that would be to thread seed beads in between the main beads, I have made loads of bracelets to this formula

              Every time I have tried to do a piece of jewellery like that, with the two threads passing each other through the bead, I have found that it tends to fold up on itself, especially if I am using the clear fishing line type thread. It's almost like, you know when you used to make fans as a kid, folding one way and then folding back the other, well it does that, is it something that I am doing wrong, or is there something I can do to flatten it back out?

                It's not mine I 'borrowed' the picture because it was clearer then the ones i've made!

                I'm suffering today! Never drinking again! Ever!
                Okay maybe just a little bit

                  I have had full blown arguments with that fishing line stuff! I get so annoyed when it snaps.
                  I always use tiger tail for this sort of thing
