Ochrana Pattern

You must make sure you can purchase the Swarovski #1695 Sea Urchins before you buy this pattern or you can substitute 14mm Rivolis #1122.
You also need the Cosmic Ring #4139 or can substitute it with something similar or a beaded ring.
The drop can be changed to another one or left out completely

Ochrana is an intermediate-advanced necklace project which combines some of my unique geometric beadwork techniques with plenty of sparkle for a versatile and adaptable piece of jewellery.

The 46-page instructions cover bezelling the central Swarovski crystal (adding extra crystals as you do so) and then turning the centrepiece into a pendant which can be strung onto the specially designed beaded chain and further accessorised with extra adornment.

This is an intermediate-advanced project which uses Peyote and Herringbone Stitches along with some size 15 seed beads.

A detailed requirements list will be included but for guidance:

  • 4mm Swarovski Bicones #5328
  • One or two x 14mm Swarovski Sea Urchins #1695 (or you can substitute 14mm Rivolis #1122)
  • One x 20mm Swarovski Cosmic Ring #4139 (or another ring or you can make a beaded one)
  • One x 28mm Swarovski Spike Pendant #6480 (this is optional and can be replaced with another large drop or left off completely)
  • Size 15 Miyuki seed beads
  • Size 11 Cylinder beads e.g. Aikos, Delicas or Treasures

All tutorials contain full instructions and tips as well as check lists for all tools, materials & techniques needed to help you shop and plan.

I love to support and encourage individuals who make beadwork so please feel free to use anything you make from these instructions or kit as gifts or to sell to support your bead buying habit!
