Toho Triangles necklace – Toho Challenge 2015

Toho Triangles necklace. Herringbone and cubic right angle weave bead stitching - seed beads, fire polish crystals, and triangles. Created for Toho Challenge 2015. Image copyright © Rose Rushbrooke.

Managed to snag a Toho Challenge package while at the 2015 Bead and Button show in Milwaukee, WI. Lovely colours this year. Especially the teals. After faffing about with various hopeless designs I discovered simple is best.

A herringbone rope stitched with teal triangles and gold size 15 seed beads, strung with a cubic right angle weave triangular pendant in metallic dark amethyst seed beads, fire polish crystals, and joined with daggers. Very pretty and wearable. In fact I wear this 18 inch long Toho Triangles necklace quite often.

To see other designs have a look at the Toho Challenge 2015 page.

This is a piece I made during June Huber’s Masterclass at the 2014 Bead & Button Show in Milwaukee, WI.

Seed beads and fire polish crystals, finished with a slide clasp. Modified right angle weave – an extremely useful technique.

The bracelet is 7 inches long from end to end.
