Hi Jennifer and Kitty - thanks so much for the really detailed tutorial. I loved making this necklace and added a charm in the middle. Your instructions and video were really easy to follow, and I found the advice about using different sizes of beads (and spacing the big ones irregularly) particularly useful.
The only problem I had was right at the end - I found that my chosen string was fine for the beads but nearly didn't fit through the crimp beads twice!! I got there in the end.
