Herringbone is a basic stitch that gets used a lot in long tubular rope necklaces because it's so fast and easy to stitch up.  A few years ago, when two-hole beads started to come onto the market, Gail figured out how to use them with herringbone, and the result is something even easier and faster.  It's also gorgeous, especially with half-tilas in these matte metallic finishes.  And that's precisely what you'll be working with in this brand new project class!  A kit and full color instructions are included in the cost -- but be prepared.  Everyone you know is going to want to snatch this one right off of your wrist!

Some bead weaving experience is necessary.  (Try our Beadweaving 101 class to learn the basics!)
