Onye Instructions

These instructions show you in detail how to bead your own version of one of my Onye pendants.

This complete 11- page step-by-step tutorial contains all the instructions, diagrams and photos you will need to make your own dazzling pendant which can use crystal rivolis, buttons or even glass eyes as its focal pieces.

A full requirements list is included but the general requirements are:

  • Size 11 Cylinder beads such as Delicas, Treasures or Aikos
  • Optional - size 15 Delica beads
  • Size 15 Miyuki seed beads
  • 14mm Rivolis
  • Beading thread & needles of choice

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.

A knowledge of peyote stitch (especially circular) is needed. This project is more suited to a non-beginner or someone who is looking for more of a challenge.

A more basic set of instructions for this project was published in issue 19 of Bead magazine
