Hey everyone! In this video I will show you how to make a beaded flower-inspired pendant design using Czech glass Dagger and Rizo beads, along with 8/0 and 11/0 Japanese seed beads. We will also use basic bead weaving techniques to create a simple bail, so you may string your new pendant on chain, or cord, of your choice.
Please see below for the full list of materials:

Turning the Pendant into a Necklace:
In this video, I also show you how to make a simple beaded bail on the back of the pendant with seed beads. It will accommodate various stringing materials, such as chain, ribbon, or cord. You can also add this pendant to a beaded necklace strung with additional beads on bead stringing wire.
For the finished examples below, the pendants have simply been added to ready-made stainless steel chain necklaces from Beebeecraft. They come in both a gold and antique silver tone, and already have the lobster clasp and jump ring attached. The fact that they are made of stainless steel means that they will resist tarnish, and they are hypo-allergenic! I love how easy these make it to swap out various beaded pendant creations on a moment’s notice.
