A customer of mine is requesting I make a choker for her daughter for her wedding. The first thing that came to mind was some kind of sead bead stitch work. Not having done too much of sead bead stitch work, can anyone recommend some books with stitch work techniques, or is there a website I can go to? Thanks for your help in advance!! :)

Nope. But a filigree wire wrap with crystals could be very pretty. I'll see if I can find a picture.

I think the seed bead choker sounds very pretty what type of focal would you use and accents? although the wire sounds pretty too, and you can always do ribbon, etc. THebluebetween - Pam does a ton of seed bead work and can probably answer your better than me!

I recently ended up purchasing a book with heirloom looking seed bead jewelry in it - I got it at the bead store. I'm sure if you looked around online there would be similar patterns available. You can use seed beads, pearls, crystals...
There is this:
And this monster list to sort through
No pattern for this one but isn't it gorgeous?!
Hope that helps!

And you can search the projects over at the Bead and Button site - tho you may have to pay a few $ to get the pattern.
Ok, I'm off - have fun searching!
