A simple square stitch bail for a donut pendant


Materials & Tools:

Large donut of desired color (40 - 60 mm is a good size range)
Brass mesh necklace, 18 inches (Fire Mountain Gems and Beads)
11/0 Delica seed beads
Beading thread
Beading needle


Basic directions for square stitch can be found at several of the links here. Start with the link for the Beadwork site at About.com.


1 Using a mixture of bead colors, square stitch a small band that is long enough to wrap through the donut hole and around the mesh wire necklace, with just enough slack to keep it from rubbing or binding.

2 Continue following the square stitch thread path to attach the ends to each other.

3 Enjoy different color combinations!
