Nylon Mesh Tubing And Czech Fire Polished Beads

One last example of how you can use nylon mesh!

I started this project after noticing that the beautiful turquoise/copper beads I brought home from my last trip to John Bead looked very pretty next to my aqua mesh.  I didn’t want to place them inside the mesh tube…I wanted to showcase them so I decided to try sewing them to the outside.

I selected a smaller matching strand of ivory lustered beads and enjoyed just sewing beads randomly to the mesh. To sew my beads I selected 100% silk thread.

At one point I stopped to see where I needed extra beads and that’s when I decided to add a pendant too.  The mesh can take the weight!

Mesh is something I am really happy to have experimented with!  The more I work with it the more ideas I have.  Time permitting, I could have sewed beads to every square inch of the mesh.  But for now, I am happy with the necklace as is.
