Description

Base stitch:  Right Angle Weave

This technique can easily be adjusted to work with several sizes and shapes of components. Add a scalloped bail and maybe some loops or fringe, and you’ll be wearing your new pendant in no time!

The Kit:
There are two types of kits available: regular and mini.  All kits include Super8s, 15/0 seed beads, 8/0 seed beads, Fireline, and a needle.  The kits have enough beads to embellish your bezel as shown in the colorway examples above.  Regular kits include a 24mm Lunasoft cab or 24mm rose quartz disc as shown below.  Mini kits do not include a component.  They include all the beads to fit a component as large as 40mm.

The Color variation lets you choose the type of kit (regular or mini) along with the color.
