Necklace made from seed beads with a white lining

We present a simple tutorial for the original and effective Tricolor necklace. We have used the transparent seed beads with a white lining from the PRECIOSA White Lining collection. The white lining highlights the color of the transparent glass of the seed beads so that your finished designs sparkle with a variety of colors. Our necklace variant is in the red-white-blue color combination, but you can use the colors of your choice. We offer PRECIOSA White Lining seed beads in 26 colors.

Material and Tools


The number of prepared stringings depends on how long you want the necklace to be. One stringing is about 60 cm long. You can use a variety of colors. We have used 5 stringings from each rocaille color.


Step 1

First string the white rocailles. Once you have strung ca 60 cm, tie off the ends and sew them into the nearest seed beads (fig. no. 1a + 1b). Coil up the stringing 3x and the first piece is finished (fig. no. 1c).

Step 2

Then do the same with the red rocailles (fig. nos. 2a + 2b + 2c).

Step 3

And you will also need a blue stringing (fig. nos. 3a + 3b + 3c). You have now finished a stringing in each color (fig. no. 3d).

Step 4

Prepare the white stringing and the carabiner with one ring. Put the ring on the carabiner and cinch the stringing in the middle (fig. no. 4).


Step 5

You can use a wooden skewer to assist you (fig. no. 5a). Prepare the red stringing (fig. no. 5b) and thread it through the white stringing (fig. nos. 5c + 5d). You can then use the skewer to straighten out the stringings (fig. no. 5e).

Step 6

Prepare the blue stringing (fig. no. 6a) and this time thread it through the red ends (fig. no. 6b + 6c). Once this has ben done, use the skewer to straighten out the stringing (fig. no. 6d).

Step 7

Keep adding stringings in that order (white, red, blue) until the necklace is of a sufficient length. Attach the rings to the last piece using pliers and it is finished (fig. no. 7).
