Pendant Kit Details
I often struggle to name my kits and designs, but this one was no trouble at all – it just reminded me of a party with the bright colours and swirls of beads around the cabochon. I created this design when I was writing my book, ‘Bead Embellished Cabochons‘. I had originally bought a bright pink glass cabochon and surrounded it with beads in pink, turquoise, mauve and green, so it really couldn’t get any brighter. Every time I wore it, the pendant received admiration, so I decided to include it in the book. Apart from anything else, it gave me the opportunity to look at objects that weren’t simply ‘found stones’ or semi-precious stones.
The glass cabochon included in this pendant kit is clear and it is a really round shape, so it makes it very easy to bezel around as you’re not worrying about trying to fit around awkward lumps and bumps in the stone! I picked out a set of bright colours in pink and lime to fit the party-time theme, but if you would prefer something different, I can happily customise a pendant kit for you. Just email me with the colouring that you would like and I will pick out seed beads and cubes to suit. The instructions for the pendant kit are in my book, Bead Embellished Cabochons, so you will need a copy of that as well. You are going to be working in Right Angle Weave (just the basic version!) and Peyote stitch, so this kit is suitable for most levels. If you need more details about the techniques, then you can find free tutorials to download to accompany the kit. Just take a look at the free tutorials page link in the menu above.
