Celtic Knot Faux Split Loom Necklace



Example stitch by Rhonda, you can see more of her work here. She made it with size 11 beads in black matte, evergreen, and matte silver, and Swarovski crystals. She said it took 35 gms of black, 8 grams of silver, and 10 grams of green beads.


Different sorts of beads and colors will give you really different looks, and I'd love to see what other people do with this pattern!



You will need seed beads in 3 colors, plus accent beads, there is so much room for creative choice on this that you can make it very much your own project. My daughter picked the colors in the pattern.
You will also need experience in odd count peyote, a clasp, and beads for fringe if you want to fringe it.
Make the main part of the necklace. When I work in odd count peyote that is shaped at the top and bottom, I start from the middle, so that when I reach the top and bottom I'm decreasing which is a lot simpler then increasing. Since peyote goes so much faster for me, I've found I use it a lot for earrings that could be brick stitched instead.

This is an example of odd count peyote stitched earrings. Because cylinder beads don't make very fluid fringe, and I didn't have any size 14s in the right color when I made these up, I made those little drops to hang on the end.

The upper design medallions you make seperately, then use strands of beads to connect them to the main part of the necklace. Make as many as you want for the length necklace you want to make.
There are knot earring patterns here if you want a matching pair of earrings.

If you like the idea of faux split loom necklaces, I highly recommend Suzanne Cooper's Second Looks and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough's patterns at Bead-Patterns.com.
