This wire loop cross pendant and necklace is made as a single interconnected piece, and looks fabulous as a short necklace. It is made using bead stringing wire (0.015in, 0.38mm), crimp beads (6), 11/0 seed beads, 4mm and 6mm round beads, and 4 Superduo beads for the center of the cross. Instead of transcribing this pattern as a diagram, I decided to create more of a picture tutorial in hopes it would be easier to follow. This piece can be made fairly quickly, so I was able to make many of them to experiment with different color combinations. You can use crimping pliers to crimp the beads at steps 7, 8, and 11, but I found just pinching the crimps flat with needle-nose pliers worked just as well, and was easier to do. I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!
