Item details

Make yourself (or someone else!) this gorgeous keepsake locket necklace. My tutorial features step by step written instructions and clear, full color photographs to guide you through the process of creating this beautiful locket. Embellished with chaton montee crystals, and hanging from a lovely link chain, the locket has a space inside for your favorite charm or keepsake, a secret only you will know unless you choose to open it. Huge thanks go to Julia Pretl for giving me permission to use her method of creating a peyote stitched rectangular base - please check out Julia's website for awesome patterns for vessels and more! (

Materials used in this project include size 11 cylinder beads, seed beads in sizes 8, 11 and 15, bali spacer beads (optional), four 4mm chaton montees (please note that these are different than roses montees!), 4mm or 5.5mm freshwater pearls, one 3mm lochrosen crystal sequin, and a charm of your choice (approximately 10mmx22mm).

Techniques used in this tutorial include odd and even count peyote, zipping up two rows of peyote, herringbone and a touch of right angle weave, as well as embellishing techniques.

Beading difficulty level: Intermediate to Advanced: you MUST have a working knowledge of odd and even count peyote and zipping up two rows to successfully complete this tutorial; these stitches are NOT explained in detail. This tutorial is 55 pages in length.
