Pendants and pendants are one of the most ancient ornamentson the ground. In ancient times they were not only elements of decor, they were talismans from evil forces or bringing good luck and happiness. Another of their roles was the designation of status in society. Leaders, shamans wore certain types of pendants, hunters, for example, fastened to their waists or put on a lace around the neck with the claws and fangs of the animals they killed. And in Ancient Egypt were very popular products with the name of the owner or in the form of a beetle-scarab, which was considered by the Egyptians as a symbol of eternal life. Over time, the ritual component fades into the background, and the pendants become just an ornament and a status indicator. The richer the owner, the more precious metals and stones were in the pendant. Thanks to the pendants, the light appeared such an ornament as a necklace, which is nothing like a monk, like a necklace with a prominent detail in the center. Over time, the pendants moved to the belt and keychains, so the key rings appeared. In this article we propose you to create by your own hands very beautiful pendants and pendants made of beads, crystals and beads of different sizes. A lot of color and texture solutions of beads will make a real masterpiece. It will take:
- Purple Rivoli 1,3х1,8 cm;
- Beads 10/0 of purple and silver color;
- Chain with rhinestones;
- Decorative pendants;
- Loop under the pendant;
- Abacus violet color 4x3 mm;
- A piece of felt;
- A piece of skin;
- Line or monofilament;
On a piece of felt paste rivoli. Glue is better to take a transparent. Now we need to braid with three rows of mosaic weaving. For the first and third rows to take beads of purple color, for the second - silvery. The next circle is to sew a chain with sequins around the weave and make another 1 row of purple. It is necessary to cut off excess fabric and glue tothe inside of a piece of leather. The edges are sewn with purple beads, using the American way of weaving: pierce the skin with the needle and bring it to the front side between the beaded row and the cloth. String 2 beads of purple and stick the needle into the fabric, bring it to the front side through the second bead. Bead "unfolds." Again, put on a purple bead, pierce the tissue base, etc. For additional wealth and beauty, you can add small pendants to the pendant. For the side take 1 abacus, 1 purple bead, 1 silver bead, again purple and at the end a metal pendant. For the central pendant, take 1 abacus, 1 purple bead, 1 silver, 1 violet, 1 abacus, 1 violet and 1 metal pendant. Attach a loop to the pendant in the middle. We must now weave the denticles using the technique of Ndebele 1 order beads of violet color, and fasten with silver beads. It remains to pass the chain into the attached loop and you can put it on. It will take:
- Beads of white and blue colors;
- Blue Rivoli 1.8 cm;
- Blue bicones 6 mm;
- Loop for pendant;
- The lock;
- A line and a needle for beads.
The first stage is the braiding of the Rivoli. It is necessary to thread 42 white beads and close in a circle. Spread the mosaic. Add another row of beads on the finished braiddark blue color. The next three rows weave in Ndebele technique, sewing them one to one. Do not sew the remaining rows. Twice ndebele petals 4-4-5-6-7-7-8 and mirror 8-7-7-6-5-4-4. The next row consists of blue bicones. Pass the line between the last beads of the petals. The last step is to string 7 white beads and pass a fishing line through the last in a row ndebele bead. Attach a loop for the pendant. You can use Ndebele or Lyuba technique for the lace. Another for your choice. But a similar pendant in golden green tones. It will take:
- Black round rivoli;
- Beads Delica 10/0 of dark metallic color;
- Beads 10/0 silver and black (a little);
- Bicones of black and silver shades;
- A line and a needle for beads.
Start work from the central facial partthe future suspension. String 28 beads, alternating silver color round and metallic dark delicacy. The first bead must be silvery. Close the row in the ring. The second row to weave delicately passing a fishing line into the silver beads of the first circle (mosaic weaving). Third row: the line comes from the second circle. To put on 1 delik, 1 biconus black1 silvery to pass a fishing line through a bicones and delicacy back. Tighten the line and pass it through the next deal of the 2nd row. So weave the whole circle together. The line comes from the second circle. One more delicacy is put on, the line is passed in the straight direction through the delicacy of the second circle, the neighboring silver bead and another delicacy. Again, put on 1 trimming and pass the line through three beads (metal, silver and again metallic colors). Weave the whole circle. It turns out that this row has become additional at the level of the second row. The next circle weave in a mosaic technique, using the beads of an additional row. The next circle: the fishing line comes out of the dexterity of the previous row, put on 1 trimming, 1 biconic silver, three silvery beads, pass the line back to the bicones and delicacy, pass the fishing line with the next succession of the previous row. Weave the whole circle. Now put the rivoli face down into the center of the weaving. Bring the line to the last circle. (in Figures 2 and 3 this is marked "b"). The next two rows are weaved in mosaic technique with silver beads. Now the rivoli is securely fixed in the braid. To weave the loop, we must weave a mosaic into four beads from the row marked "b". Use both delicacy and black plain beads. Then weave (approximately 12 - 15 beads in length) folded in half and attached to the beginning of the work.
