Beaded Pendant

My First Beaded Pendant


Hello Everyone!
Are you excited seeing my beaded pendant? Yes! I'm back with my beaded creations wohoo! It's been awhile and I'm happy seeing my self going through with my beads again. I made earrings and bracelet before but never tried to make a necklace pendant, seems like intimidating but I'm so inspired today, OR I would say inspired overload hahaha. The inspiration behind this beaded pendant and all of my bead creations is from YouTube video- Alesha (beadifulnights)-She's so awesome and super easy to follow tutorial! 
Since, my daughter just turned 5 couple days ago. I wanted to surprised her with this necklace pendant but you know, its hard to keep surprises in my house, especially that my kids follow me everywhere I go. When, I started digging and looking with my beads, my daughter just literally pick the colors of beads she wants. So, that's how we came up with a little bit of everything here. It was fun! and I think it would compliment her fashion taste. Are you ready for super easy tutorial? I promise you! its addicting and super fun to do.:) The finished product is awesome!- (I'm not gonna take this necklace off Mommy!- Reyna said) How sweet right? I'm thinking about making one for myself too!
The idea is add this beaded pendant with your necklace chain and that's exactly what we did on this project. If you have a good beaded necklace chain, its also just perfect!
Come on let's start making them. Its also a perfect way used your left over beads and create this simple yet awesome pendant.

NOTES:- choose your favorite bead colors and sizes. Make sure that your center pieces starts with smallest beads then round beads and then larger beads.
- I used whatever I have on hand, So, you don't have to buy special kind of beads to create this Beaded Pendant.

Materials:
 2 ft. 8lb fishing line
(4)  4mm round beads- dark brown
(4)  6mm Bi-cone beads
(4)  smaller beads- red 
(8) 6/0 beads- silver
(8) pieces 8/0 round beads- white
11/0 for embellishment- rainbow color
necklace string of your choice-

Instructions:
1.) First you need to make the base/ the front of the pendant and to do that. All you need is slide 11/0 on the middle on both string slide down white beads which is the 8/0 but you can totally used whatever smaller beads you have on hand, then slide 11/0, then 8/0 again then crisscross on the 11/0 beads.
2.) After making the base we are going to start to make the second later of the pendant.  On the left string add the round beads- brown round beads then the bi-cone and slide the thread into the first white beads on the base.
3.) Do the same process until both thread are existing on round dark brown beads then slide the bi-cone and crisscross. Keep the thread tied enough make sure that it look like on the photo above.
4.) It's time to add some embellishment on the outside layer of the pendant. by doing so, Just simple slide any smaller beads you have, in this project I used red. keep going ti until all the side are filled.
5.) I add more 6/0 silver bead on the side to make the whole pendant secure and pretty looking. But you can totally skip this process. I just think its kinda pretty. Then slide  (12) 11/0 beads then go through every single one of them to make it tight to make a little loop for necklace string.
6.) Done! just add your favorite necklace string or you can make personalized  the way you want it to be.:)


 What do you think about the finish product?  Would you add this to your kikay accessories? Another sweet idea is. This  is also a thoughful gift ideas to your friends and family and even your daughter will love having them. I hope you get inspired and you learn something here. Thank you so much for reading and visiting my blog. I'll see you next time for more awesome beaded creations, fabulous freebies, outdoors fun and much much more. Enjoy the rest of the day and be inspired!
