I love coming up with new designs for seed beads, and I especially love all of the new colors we just received! For this design, I paired pink, white, and gold tones with this Agate coin pendant for a unique layered necklace.

Supplies you’ll need:

  • Seed Beads
  • Gemstone Coin Pendant
  • Gold Wire (20 & 24 Gauge)
  • Jump Rings
  • Lobster Clasps
  • Headpins
  • Super Glue
  • Gold Chain

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step

Step 1

Follow the attached tip for how to wire wrap a bail onto a pendant. Next, slide 13 gold 11/0 seed beads onto a headpin to make a bead charm. Use a jump ring to attach the charm to the wire loop on the pendant.

Step

Step 2

For the chain, use 24 gauge wire & seed beads to make bead links. Attach the links directly to one another until you've reached your desired length. I made two 11" pieces of bead chain, and then attached each end to the gemstone pendant with jump rings (or attach the link directly to the pendant).

Step

Step 3

For the seed bead pendant necklace, you'll need 13 head pins. On the first headpin (which will be the one in the center), slide on 8 pink, 2 gold, 2 transparent rainbow light topaz, 2 more gold, and 7 opaque rainbow white 11/0 seed beads. The six headpins to the left & right will be the same, except reduce the opaque white seed bead by one each time. Next, make a bead link with a 20 gauge piece of wire. Slide on the headpins in the order shown in the picture, with each separated by an 8/0 seed bead. Use jump rings to attach your desired length of chain to each end of the link (I used two 7" pieces of chain). Lastly, I placed small drops of super glue in between the drops so they don't move around.
