The Claw Pendant Tutorial

Level: Intermediate

Steps: 28

This lesson teaches you how to make a Dragon or Falcon claw pendant. This design uses two contrasting weaves, one for the bail or leg and the other (the rainbow weave) is used to form the foot, covering half of the bead. This is a very quick design to make using minimal materials, making it the perfect gift idea. The pendant measures ¾” tall and 1/3” wide.

This design also lends itself to earrings, by making a matching pair and adding earwires and jump rings, you have yourself an unusual and stylish set of jewellery.
