PATTERN DETAILS

This is another pendant of which I made a gazillion, and I pretty much love most of them. I bought every suitable oval bead in my local bead store to see what worked. I found that it's important that the oval bead not be too fat: the diameter should be less than half the length. This intricate, bell-shaped pendant is centred around long oval or rice-shaped beads and an assortment of fire-polished and seed beads in various sizes. The substructure is right angle weave, using the larger beads, while the smaller beads are used both for embellishment as well as to give the pendant structure and stability. There is some wiggle room in the size of the long oval beads (you could adjust seed bead counts to compensate for a slight difference), but they can be faceted or smooth, as long as they do taper at both ends and are not too fat in the middle. The wire or head pin will form the bail, along with the ring or jump ring - an onyx or agate ring would be fun to use too. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY right angle weave seed bead weaving netting SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Pendant is about 2" long

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!
