Bead Table Wednesday – Autumn Layers Pendant

Welcome to Bead Table Wednesday! Today on my video tutorial I shared some expected tricks with layering charms to tie together a design. I also showed a quick way to add texture and color with super duo seed beads and wire to create beaded links. Go crazy and make a whole chain of the links, use them as earring dangles or as a color accent like I did in my pendant.

Watch the video here:

 

Here is a close-up for the bead pattern for the links.
