A couple of years ago, I started seeing this wonderful variation on St. Petersburg chain popping up in magazines and in finished beadwork on Etsy. I was never particularly fond of St. Petersburg chain, but double St. Petersburg chain makes a beautiful strap for a beaded necklace or a gorgeous beaded bracelet all by itself. If you are already familiar with St. Petersburg chain, working this variation of the popular beading stitch is easy and fun!
