This oversized lariat was my 2014 Toho Challenge project. I had a very hard time initially not using any Swarovski crystal in a project, but I did end up loving the Czech two-hole daggers, pear shaped drops, and two-hole tile beads. The name of this necklace comes from the fact that each beaded bead on the neckstrap is the same beaded bead, just at a different stage in construction. Because of this method of construction and the look of the fringe, the piece just reminds me of plant life and the stages of growth.

Techniques:
Peyote stitch, odd-count peyote stitch, netting, right angle weave.

Intensity:
High Intermediate (4 out of 5 stars)
