This is another version to the earlier sparkly ‘O’. Just like the earlier sparkly ‘O’, you can use it on its own as
a pendant or like how I like to use these ‘O’s best is by making your own T-bar and use it like a toggle clasp
which in the end also doubles up as a pendant.
This is a relatively easy tutorial where you’ll learn how to make this sparkly ‘O’ in less than 10 steps using teardrop bead. This is a very flexible tutorial in that it works with any size of teardrop beads or even using different sizes together to achieve different effects.
I will also be suggesting alternative design that you can do. You can easily vary the size of the 'O' using more or less bead. Design possibilities are endless!
The 'O' with the red teardrop bead is bigger and uses 30 beads whereas the crystal ones are alightly smaller using only 24 beads. As far as the sizes of the teardrop beads are concerned, the crystal ones are 11mm and the red ones are smaller, 6mm.
This tutorial only teaches you how to make the 'O'. For adaptation of the 'O' into these necklaces/pendants, you are expected to know the basics of making a loop, a wrapped loop, opening and closing jump ring and also wrapping a teardrop bead. Any additional material will be needed accordingly depending on how and what you want to adapt this 'O' into.
Tools & materials used:
- (30) teardrop beads of any size
