"Unchained Beast" necklace
beautifully illustrated instructions from Jane Eborall's website. The diamond shapes are clunies, and I found Karen Cabrera's video helpful with learning these. I find her way of just letting the loop hang, instead of hooking it on little finger, to be easier for me.
The thread is size 3 Lizbeth, and the beads size 6 seed beads. I ran out of thread partway through, which is often going to happen when using big size 3 thread. Not much will fit on a shuttle, and I used my larger shuttles, too, so that's another way this project was a "beast". But, good practice and now I have a necklace to wear with my red t-shirt.
