The word Iris comes from the Greek goddess of the rainbow. The many colors of this round pendant reminded me of an iris, with it’s lights and darks slicing from the center to the outer circle. Beautiful twin hole beads make this project possible. Silver lined crystal delicas and round silver beads add to the detailed design. Like so many complicated looking projects, this is a lot easier to make than it appears.
Step 1 - The pendant is made up of four rows of circular beading. The red circles in the illustrations represent the thead. The bead colors are intended to make the instructions easier to understand. Thread a big eye beading needle with about 24” of beading thread.
