Designed by Heather Collin.
ELULA means simple in Zulu and this beautifully textured, short necklace, is made up of simple elements that are stitched together. There are 2 tricky areas that will put a bit of strain on your needles but it is so worth that little bit of effort. As in so many of my patterns, once you have the necklace beaded, you will want to create an elegant bracelet to go with it and then, a stunning pair of earrings as well, ELULA works up very quickly and will, at most, take you maximum 2 days, if not 1 to bead up.
Techniques: Circular Peyote and Picot stitch
