This striking necklace is made with fairly chunky cords, giving a braid diameter of approximately 1cm. The spotty beads are flat glass disks, 1cm in diameter, with a black background and silver spots, with an iridescent ‘peacock’ centre.
It is an intermediate level design, which requires some prior experience of the Prumihimo disk.
