fabric-and-bead necklace: pick 2 coordinating fabric scraps to go with your beads, contrasting textures (such as linen & velvet) & coordinating colors work well. cut them into squares or circles that are about twice as big as your beads. take needle and thread and start assembly: i folded each of the linen pieces over a bead and stuck the needle through all (fabric - bead - fabric). the velvet bits were folded double before adding. no need to follow a specific pattern. improvise!
