Bicycle Chain Pendant necklace

A clever chain using O-beads and size 15 seed beads. Flexible and pretty – thank you to our Bead Retreat teacher for passing on this design. I’ve seen a lot of the Portland Bead Society members using this technique.

Truthfully I don’t know what kind of stone the pendant is fashioned from but whatever it is, it’s very pretty and works well with the chain colours. A simple toggle and clasp finishes off the necklace.

The chain is about 21 inches long. The pendant is 1 1/8 inch across and 1 1/2 inches down.
