Tiger Eye & Carnelian Hoop Necklace Tutorial

Tiger Eye and Carnelian Necklace

Why We Love this Tutorial:

This simple hoop design makes for a striking statement! It is super easy to make, and should take less than an hour to complete. It can be made with almost any type of small beads, which means it is also very versatile! If you choose to use smaller beads, you can make many more rows than the three we have done in this tutorial. Or example is quite small, at about 30mm across. You can make this design any size you like! I have seen some up to about 80mm across (thanks, lovely class ladies!).
