Sterling & 24kt Gold Twist Necklace Pattern
This pattern teaches tubular herringbone and gives comprehensive instructions and tips in English, with sketches. You can make it predominantly silver with a strand of gold, or reverse the materials to make it mostly gold with a strand of silver. Or just use any colours you like! We have used 15/0 because it makes such a delicate rope, but you can use any beads you like really....
