Bolo Variation Necklace Instructions. This Netted Rope with Slide Beads project was inspired by the bolo ties that I saw so often in Santa Fe while living there. I liked the idea of being able to change the design of a necklace by sliding beads on a “rope”. The necklace uses a tubular horizontal netting, graphed tubular peyote, vertical netting, flat peyote, and brick stitch. Length as worn is variable due to the design. This project is for advanced beadweavers.
