Weave a collection of self-supporting geometric beaded beads with bicone crystals and two-hole beads! The Opulent Deltahedra feature the geometry of the deltahedra: a class of 3D shapes made up of equilateral triangles. As seen in Beadwork Magazine, the Opulent Octahedron is the perfect size for stringing, while the new Opulent Icosahedron is the ideal size for a pendant. String several beaded beads with crystal pearls for a gorgeous necklace, and complete the set with a quick pair of matching earrings.

This pattern is appropriate for beaders who would like to explore triangle weave with two-hole beads and who would like to learn a dimensional take on this technique. The pattern includes detailed step-by-step instructions showing how to weave not only the Opulent Octahedron, but also the Opulent Icosahedron and the matching Opulent Earrings. The expanded variations section describes beaded versions of all eight deltahedra, and provides tips and guidelines for beaders who want to further explore these geometric structures.


The Opulent Deltahedra beading pattern includes:

  • Complete written instructions on how to weave the Opulent Octahedron, the Opulent Icoshaedron, and the matching Opulent Earrings.
  • Photos and beaded examples of all eight deltahedra.
  • 26 pages of step-by-step instructions.
