Autumn Arbor Beadwork Necklace Tutorial

Beading Boosts 
Part 2 of 2
One good way to boost your beading designs (or any jewelry design for that matter) is to combine stitches (or techniques).

Take a good look at Cyndi Lavin's drop dead gorgeous Autumn Arbor bead work necklace. Isn't it amazing that this piece is mostly made out of just seed beads?

The use of actual leaf beads here and there is inspired! She not only designed it but also generously wrote the tutorial on how to make it on her blog.

Cyndi's necklace was constructed using 3 types of stitches - tubular herringbone for the main necklace, free form right angle weave for the open work panels and spiral square stitch for the tendrils. She also added the links to tutorials you'll need for each of these stitches. Via
