I really love how this pendant turned out! It comes in two flavors: Diamond-shaped and Cross-shaped. Both require Superduos, 4mm and 6mm round beads or pearls, and 11/0 seed beads. When experimenting with different color combinations, I found that a higher-contrast seed bead color accentuated the outline of the cross-shape better. Between the smaller Czech 11/0 seed beads and larger TOHO 11/0 seed beads, I found the smaller ones worked slightly better. However, larger TOHO beads still worked in this pattern (see the dark copper and bronze examples below). I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!
