This seed beading pattern / beading tutorial contains all the instructions you need to make this dramatic geometric beaded necklace.
This Lotus necklace, which features a pendant which can also be worn as a brooch, a hidden clasp and a beaded chain is possibly my favourite ever project. From the second I began this I fell in love with it.
Beaded using peyote stitch with cylinder and seed beads with a dramatic centrepiece this incorporates lots of geometric beadwork.
The 13-page pattern includes full step-by-step instructions and diagrams to bead the chain and the pendant.
This pattern has text, diagrams and photos. All of my tutorials contain full instructions and tips as well as check lists for all tools, materials and techniques needed to help you shop and plan.
A knowledge of peyote is recommended. This project is more suited to a non-beginner.
- Cylinder beads e.g. Delicas or Aikos (any size) in size 11.
- Size 15 seed beads
- 30mm Swarovski flatback chessboard crystal item # 2035 (or similar)
- Popper fastener
- Needle and thread of choice
I love to support and encourage individuals who make beadwork so please feel free to use anything you make from these instructions as gifts or to sell to support your bead buying habit!
