Create a dazzling beaded pendant out of 3D components that frame delicate flowers! I taught this project in several workshops over the past few years, and I'm pleased to now offer it as a pattern. The Oscillations Pendant features a trio of beaded components that form shadow boxes around beaded flowers. Stitch these shadow boxes with a unique combination of stitches and a collection of two-hole beads and Japanese seed beads. The pendant is finished with a gorgeous Swarovski drop crystal and a matching twisting spiral rope.
This pattern is appropriate for beaders who would like to try structural beading with Tila beads, and who would like to learn how to stitch flowers with Rizo beads. Beaders who have stitched the Sakura Bouquet Necklace or the Water Lily Windows Bracelet are in great shape to try this design!
The Oscillations beading pattern includes:
- 26 pages of step-by-step instructions.
- 89 full color illustrations and photographs.
- Several photos of finished jewelry.

- Czech Rizo beads
