newXmaswreathsA new seasonal version of my wreath pendant – the pattern for this is still available to download free, see this post. As you can see from the pattern instructions this pattern is very versatile – you can use firepolish beads, pearls, rondelles or crystals for the main beads and either delicas or size 15s with a few 11s for the netting and bail. Why not make them into earrings as well? And they work up so quickly you still have time to make some to wear or as decorations for your tree.


I bought a few of these soft touch cabochons a few months ago, but only recently found time to try bezelling one. The czech size 11 turquoise beads are a good match for the colour, and I think this makes a pretty pendant.
