Olive Paper Beads Torsade

Posted on Feb 10, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 12 comments

This necklace came about by experimenting how to do what I call a permanent torsade.  A torsade is usually done by twisting several strands of beads and then fastening the clasp to keep the torsade in place.  I find that when you strung them with wire and twist them, it stays in place and would lay beautifully on your neck.  I made this necklace with the extra small olive beads and glass beads.



I would like to try this with pearls and gem stones and maybe in white olive paper beads.


I have not done any video tutorial for this project, I thought that if there is enough request for a video tutorial then I would have to make time to do it.  So, please let me know if it is worth doing a tutorial on how to do this very easy simple style of making a torsade necklace, I need at least 15 requests for a tutorial, you can leave me a comment or email me.
