Pattern Description:

Learn how to make this sparkling beaded photo pendant. This pendant is 2 sided and has dual functions. One side is beaded with sparkling beads and the other side allows you to display picture of your loved ones! So you can choose to have the picture facing front or the beaded side facing front. If you would like to be more subtle for not showing off the picture of your loved ones, just turn the side with picture facing your body and have the beaded side showing others. But you can admire the photos anytime you like. Of course, the whole idea of the photo pendant is to share with others the picture of your loved ones. Basically, you can wear it to show the world or just keep close to your heart!

You can also use it as a pendant without the picture. This tutorial shows step by step guides on making the pendant. There are 35 key steps in 16 pages that will be delivered to you in PDF format. It is easy to follow even for a beginner.

For picture, we recommend you laminate the photo and cut it into round shape which can be easily done by you or stationery shop. The process of picture preparation and lamination is not included here.
