Odyssey - Woven Bezel Pendant Tutorial Pattern

Pattern Details





Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Pattern Description:

The Odyssey pendant is a very versatile design. There are many ways to alter the technique to make it truly your own. By varying the width of the bezel or the bail, altering the spiral, or adding one of many other techniques you may already know, you can create an entirely new pendant design.

For the woven bail, you will need to use my Basic Weaving Techniques lesson as a reference. It can be found, free of charge, here: http://www.gailavira.com/tutorials

This lesson illustrates the creation of the Black Onyx Odyssey Pendant. Tips for making the other pendants can be found at the end of the tutorial.
