White Tila and Ebony Bead Pendant
White pearl finish Tila beads mix with ebony twin hole beads and seed beads to create the beautiful clean lines of this diamond shaped pendant. Versatile enough to wear with any color or fashion.
Although I chose to add this project to a chain to wear as a necklace, you could make two pieces and dangle them from earring wires... if you like earrings that make a bold statement. At 1.25”, they certainly would!
The red arrows in the steps indicate the direction of the thread. The hand-drawn red lines represent the thread.
step 12 - Attach a jump ring to the pendant by passing the needle through it three times. Move back through the top hole of the oval bead. Work the thread in and out of several beads tying half hitch knots in between to keep the work from unraveling.
step 13 - Remove the stop bead from the beginning thread and work it through beads adding half hitch knots. Trim excess from both threads.
step 14 - Attach a bail to the jump ring. Be sure the ring is closed tight so the thread connecting it to the pendant doesn’t slip through.
