Captured Coin Pendant

Have you ever gone on vacation and come home with a handful of beautiful coins to remind you of your trip? How are they going to bring back memories if they’re hiding in a drawer? Make something beautiful and lasting (and most importantly, wearable!) out of those treasures. Surround them with BEADS!

These instructions cover a peyote stitch bezel (both sides of the coin are visible), an increase in tension and decrease in bead size to hold the coin in place, embellished picot decorations, and a brick stitched bail. It also includes the initial bead counts for common U.S. coins.

What You Will Need:
One Coin (circular, any size)
Size 11//0 Delica Beads
Size 15/0 Toho Seed Beads
Size 13/0 Charlottes
12 – 30 6mm Beads (rounds, bicones, or rondelles)
Size 13 Beading Needle
Beading Thread
Sharp Scissors

You will receive the 10-page PDF instructions. You must have Adobe Reader, which you can download for free at:
