Gerlinde Lenz created a new technique in which you can simulate a bead rope made with crochet. It is called Peyote with a twist.
I made this necklace in this great technique.
If you want to make this necklace yourself you use the free instructions I made. It is not a perfect pattern but it will give you an idea on how it is made. You need to have some experiance with this technique. You can find some instruction videos on You Yube on how to do Peyote with a twist. among otheres by Jill Wiseman.
This bracelet is made with the new Miyuki Quarter tilas and tilas. I also use one of my favorite: Crystal Mesh.
The pattern for this bracelet is available in my shop: https://www.etsy.com/nl/shop/Akkesieraden
