Who doesn't like anything that sparkles? These eye catching long magatama pendants will be sure to add class and sophistication to your jewellery box. Join Sarah Millsop with this easy to follow tutorial and make your very own handmade pendant. Have a go at making two pendants to create matching earrings :) We also have instructions for the pendant (Page 1.JPG and Page 2.JPG) which is an added bonus. 

I was inspired by Sarah's beautiful pendants and as it is such a popular design I decided to create it in another colour. I just love the shine the duracoat galvanized silver long magatama beads give off and along with the Swarovski rivoli, you will be shining all day.

Ready let's stitch!
