Variation inspiration… That Lariat

I love it when you show and share your variations of my tutorials.

My dear friend Caroline Hucklesby has been busy with the ‘That Lariat’ tutorial, take a look at this gorgeousness inspired by the Chinese puzzle variation.

I had instant necklace envy, so we snapped a quick picture during class, the hastily sourced crumpled paper background lending itself to the classic terracotta, ivory taupe and charcoal colours. Caroline used subtly dark AB finish crystals for just the right hint of glitter as the beading moves when worn. Love it!

The pattern for That Lariat is available to download here if you want to have a play; it includes a bracelet and several necklace variations. Stash wise, you will need 2x4mm peanut beads, seed beads in sizes 11 and 8 and lots of sparkly crystals in 2mm, 2.5mm or 3mm.
