Lariats are a great way to make any outfit look cool as there are tons of designs. I think selecting from a sorbet selection of gorgeous semi-precious stones and freshwater pearls and, creating a design is the best part! Simple design tips I always suggest would be, stick to colors your drawn to, choose colors that really complement your skin tones. Remember chunckier beads take less time to make, however not so for smaller beads as it can take 3hrs +. If you struggle with pairing colors, invest in a good color wheel from your local art supply store until you feel more confident. Always pick a special bead as an accent bead for the end making sure it will fit through the ring. This will be the focal point of your lariat, therefore it has to be a stunner, and who knows someone may want to buy it off your neck!
