PATTERN DETAILS

Do you have a whole bunch of these gorgeous briolette beads with no idea how to incorporate them into your beadwork? No problem, this project will set you straight. Start with a 10mm bead (glass, gemstone, faceted, whatever), add a bit of peyote, a bit of netting and some other odds and ends, and you'll end up with a delightfully dimensional pendant that you'll probably finish in a few hours at most. Note: Choose your needle and thread such that the size 15 seed beads can accommodate thread three times through them. Depending on the colour (different colours have slightly different sizes of bead holes), a size 12 needle with doubled Nymo B will be fine. This is an advanced beginner to intermediate seed beading project. It has a couple of slightly tricky steps, but you repeat each of them twelve times, which I'm told helps! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY peyote stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS about 1.5" in diameter

Recommended with this pattern

  • 11x12mm Czech briolettes (12)

I can neither imagine nor remember a time when I wasn't making things. I have tried almost every fiber art, and currently knit and spin my own yarn. I sew clothes and furnishings occasionally. I've dabbled in polyclay, lampwork and silver-smithing, but immerse myself in seed beading. I teach at a local bead store, as well at national shows from time to time. Patterns in my shop are by and large based on classes I have taught, so they've been tested on real people!
