Are you sure this is bead embroidery? Actually, Margot is a hybrid of bead embroidery, bead weaving, and stringing. Start with an unusual Czech bead and add some glass pearls and sparkling crystals. Dress it up with a few Art Deco touches and a cascade of fringe and you have a show stopper necklace inspired by a stunner worn on the Hollywood red carpet. We’ll use bead embroidery’s stop stitch and blanket stitch, odd count peyote stitch with increasing and decreasing, and lots of fringe. Margot is a fun project that unzips your creativity.
