Sea Keeper Necklace

PROJECT N8020
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
This ocean-inspired pendant combines Czech glass 2-hole Cabochon beads with 8/0 seed beads to create a circular bead woven pendant, attractively embracing a graceful seahorse charm. The pendant is easily hung onto a gold plated finished cable chain.
Instructions
This necklace measures 17.5 inches total. To modify the length, you will want to purchase a shorter or longer finished chain.
  1. Please watch the video: How to Bead Weave a Circular Frame Using Two-Hole Beads. Follow along with the video to bead weave your pendant, but substitute the following: Cabochon beads for Honeycomb beads, and 8/0 seed beads for 11/0 seed beads (the order and count of your beads will remain the same as in the video). Note: each Cabachon bead has a curved front side and a flat back side, so be sure that all of your Cabachon beads are facing the same direction as you weave.
  2. Attach your seahorse charm and chain as shown in the video. Enjoy your necklace!
