Love That Chenille Stitch!

Just finished this golden tubular chenille stitch necklace using 6/0 gold and matte rainbow seed beads. This was my first time using the larger seed beads and I am hooked.  I really liked the way it turned out.


The weave is so much more flexible then tubular peyote stitch. This necklace really lays nice and has a lot of movement.


And the ends finish off so nice.  There is no need for end caps.
