Pattern Description:

This lesson teaches you to make a beaded frame for a pendant. Though it is shown on a teardrop shaped bead, it can easily be adapted to work with almost any shape of bead, including crystal points. Also, if you prefer a frame without beads, you can leave them out of the weave for a simpler look. You could even use a different style of weave for the frame.

With a little bit of imagination, and few changes here and there, you can create a limitless number of pieces using the techniques in this tutorial.

The stone used for the pendant I made while illustrating this tutorial is a titanium druzy teardrop. An excellent supplier for the druzy beads used in this design is NeatoThings on Etsy:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/neatothings (She also sells the gorgeous Solar Quartz beads that I used in one of the sample pendants)

Materials:

  • 1 Teardrop shaped bead - Must be top side drilled (other shapes can be used for this lesson with a few adaptations)
  • 20g Round Soft Wire (amount depends on size of bead)
  • 28g Round Soft Wire (amount depends on size of bead)
  • 2mm beads (amount depends on size of focal bead)

You Will Also Need:

  • Chain nose pliers
  • Round nose pliers
  • Wire cutters
  • Flat nose pliers
  • ruler
  • Marker
