Hi Pam,

I used the direcrions I found in a back issue of Bead and Button magazine. The issue was Apr. 2007. It was a little confusing at first but I just kept trying till I got it. I am a self taught beader  so I just have to keep trying till I get it. Some times I wake up in the middle of the night and say to myself "oh!! that is what they ment".LOL

Hope this helps.

Sue

Happy Beading!!

 Wow Sue that was quick ....thankyou.. at the next meeting of my local Bead Society I will check through the library of the back issues and hopefully they will have it.

I'm pretty well self taught too until I found out about the Bead society. We have a great time once a month...I didnt know there were so many beaders....all of my close friends are quilters so now I have a place to go where they understand that glazed beady look

Greatly appreciate your response

warmest regards Pam

Hi Pam,

I was a little bit late in reading this post, but I got attracted by the St. Petersburg necklace shown in the Reader Showcase and wanted to know how this stitch is done. So I googled it and found the pdf. I love pdfs as you don't have to print them at once but can save them on your pc until you really need them (if you find them amongst all the other inspirations, patterns, ideas, instructions....Wink).

Smile I have quite a collection of pdf's saved myself and yes trying to find that particular pattern can be an interesting hunt. I tend to get sidetracked...but at least pdfs dont clutter the bookcase, table and floor....well not 'til they get printed anyway Wink

I've had to set up various folders so I can keep separate all the patterns & inspiration pics I've downloaded, but you're right-much less clutter than printing them all.  When I go looking for something I usually end up with way more inspiration than I intended.Big Smile

The article in Bead and Button is really nice! I think it will answer any questions about the St Petersburg chain! I followed the instructions there and was successful the first try, and I'm a novice!
