  • Quick Project Steps

    Create the Initial Loop: Thread a size 11 beading needle with size 6 Dragon thread. String one 11/0 seed bead, one Round Trio bead (outer hole), and repeat until you have four Round Trio beads. Tie the thread into a loop and pass the needle through the next 11/0 seed bead and Round Trio bead (outer hole). Add Iris Duo Beads: Step up to the middle hole of the Round Trio beads. Add two 11/0 seed beads between each Round Trio bead. Add three Iris Duo beads with the flat side facing the back. Repeat this process for all four sides. Incorporate Crystal Bicone Beads: Pass the needle through the first hole of the Iris Duo beads. Add one 11/0 seed bead, one 4mm Bicone bead, and another 11/0 seed bead. Sew through the next Iris Duo bead and repeat for all four sides. Create the Ladder Stitch Bail: Add two 11/0 seed beads and pass the needle through the last two beads. Repeat adding two beads at a time until the bail reaches the desired length. Attach the bail to the pendant by sewing through the initial seed beads. Reinforce and Finish: Reinforce the bail by sewing through it multiple times. Pass the thread through the middle of the design to hide it. Tie off and trim any excess thread. Optional Necklace: Use extra supplies to create a matching necklace with 11/0 seed beads and 4mm Bicone beads. Attach a lobster clasp using crimps or thread and needle.
