This Lotus necklace, which features as a project in Geometric Beadwork Volume 2, combines a pendant which can also be worn as a brooch, a hidden clasp and a beaded chain is possibly my favourite ever project. From the second I began this I fell in love with it.
Beaded using peyote stitch with cylinder and seed beads with a dramatic centrepiece this incorporates lots of geometric beadwork.
The 13-page pattern include full step-by-step instructions and diagrams to bead the chain and the pendant.
All tutorials contain full instructions and tips as well as check lists for all tools, materials and techniques needed to help you shop and plan.

- Size 15 seed beads
- 30mm Swarovski flatback chessboard crystal item # 2035 (or similar)
