I created this herringbone stitch necklace for the Aglio pendant. I made a 86 cm (34 inch) long rope without clasp, and plugged both ends of the chain through the Aglio pendant. It gave a very interesting result, my pendant became a scarf buckle.
I played with the rope and the pendant. I plugged the herringbone rope through the Aglio bead and created a simple pendant (a big bead on a rope) from it.
At the end I turned it into a real garlic (hence the name Aglio, it means garlic) by using a big bead cap. I attached a big jump ring to the pendant, and put it on the herringbone necklace.
And now I wrote a tutorial for the herringbone necklace as well, which teaches you how you can bead a herringbone rope from seed beads, and how you can create a necklace from your herringbone rope.
You can create a simple herringbone necklace with clasp, or a necklace without a clasp. In this case you can use a beaded bead to fasten the two ends of your necklace, as I did with the Aglio beaded bead.
The Aglio beaded bead is a part of my Aglio jewellery collection, which consists of a beaded bead, a bracelet, and a big ring.
