French knitting with beads

My Creation

First attempt at french-knitting with beads (or spool knit jewellery) - result = mauve bracelet.
Second attempt, different pattern, with silver elasticated thread and aquamarine beads for necklace, fastenings still need to be attached. In both types, the beads must be threaded on to the elasticated thread before starting project, a bit fiddly, but quite rewarding in the end. I used book by Klutz 'Spool Knit Jewelry', found in children's department of Hobbycraft.
