Bead embroidered turquoise pendant


Do you see a pattern forming? :-)  After last week's pink pendant, I decided to go ahead and show you another of my "trial run" pieces.  It's fun to practice on smaller works!


1. I bezeled an oval-shaped bead, using a classic peyote bezel style.  See the tiny black beads at each end?  They are size 15/0s instead of 11/0s so that it will pinch in on the ends.  Next I added an additional row of peyote and morphed it into RAW, which I continued for a couple of rounds.  The last row is short stack stitches.



2. The whole piece is edged with edging brick stitch, as usual.




3. I added stacks and accent beads to the edge.




4. The usual square stitch bail for the back...




5. ...and it's done!
