Roller Chain Rope & Paradox Pendulum - Tutorial


Two tuts to learn how to make a "Paradox Pendulum", a hollow pendant that can be customized and a roller chain rope, which is a double-sided rope. Read my blog post about this design here. You can place a small object on the inside of the pendant. In this pendulum, there is a little "amphorette" - you can download the free instructions for it on this page. You can also buy only the rope, or only the pendant.

Materials: Japanese cylinder beads and seed beads size #11, 3mm firepolished beads, 3mm glass pearls, size 15/0 Japanese seed beads, cotton pearls, a hook clasp or two-strand clasp, plus the usual (clasp, thread, needles, scissors). 

Technique: Dimensional Peyote - with increases. Diamond Weave variation 8 in the round - you need to have notions of Diamond Weave - you can learn the basic stitch here. Knowledge of Variation 8  is an advantage, but not mandatory. 

Level: intermediate to advanced
