~~~~ About this pendant ~~~~
This tutorial will show you how to create a beautiful pendant using a 4 cm diameter stone and a mandala coin. The coin is glued over the stone which is bezeled using delica and seed beads in circular peyote stitch. This tutorial also includes the instructions for the beaded bail. You can also use your own bail, a metal one or any other one you choose.
