Reversible Siren's Medallion

Lately, I've read and seen projects using  two-hole beads, especially superduos, that I had to give a try.

This issue of Beadwork came just the right time. The "Siren's Medallion" designed by Barbara Falkowitz caught my attention.

...But then I wondered whether I wanted purple or turquoise to be the dominant color. If the pendant is reversible then I wouldn't have this dilemma.

So I followed the instructions up to Round 3, then I alternately added a superduo and a 3mm Czech bead all around one medallion.

The superduos were used as bridges to connect the two medallions together.

Four size 11 seed beads were added in between two superduos to cover the gap.
