Right-Angle Weave Pendants

Right-angle weave, one of the bead weaving techniques that I dreaded....but  the stunning  projects in this book  by  Marcia DeCoster made it very hard to resist.

This  "Gabriella" pendant was made with size 11 seed beads and  size 3mm Czech beads instead of  semiprecious turquoise beads like the author did. Dangling from the diamond drop is an amethyst stone.

I embellished one side with 3mm light topaz Czech beads.
The other side was embellished with purple Czech beads so it can be worn either side.

 By omitting the diamond shape, I was making a tear-drop shape pendant.  

Two pieces were connected with size 4mm Czech beads.

A bezeled 10mm pearl was made to attach inside the pendant.

One side of the pendant was embellished with 3mm garnet stones.
The other side was embellished with 3mm round Swarovski crystals.

Here is a Tiffany inspired pendant. Two diamond  shapes were  connected.
I also made it reversible.
