This intriguing Peyote stitch pendant, reminiscent of a pendulum or an Arabian lantern, is created using geometric beadwork techniques.

Interesting to look at from all angles, it cleverly encompasses two free moving larger focal beads and showcases a shimmering Swarovski Crystal square Spike bead.

The pendant hangs from a simple twisted Herringbone stitch rope.

Part of the design can be adapted to make a more dainty pendant if preferred.

Siân Nolan

When Siân's obsession with teeny tiny glass beads began nearly 20 years ago now, she never could have imagined where it would take her; travelling, teaching workshops, writing for books and magazines, meeting her beading idols and the biggest surprise of all, in 2015 having her own book published.

Siân loves the whimsical and unusual and is inspired by bright colours so it's no surprise that her book, 'Siân's Needle Cases' contains a quirky and fun collection of playful cases.
