May 2007 Beaded Moon Pendant Project

You can find a variety of Free Arts and Craft Project here, including beaded project and other project. This month's project is a 3-D beaded moon pendant made with pearls using the Right Angle Weave technique (RAW). Great as a fashion accessory or as a jewelry gift.

The pictorials are illustrated with spaces between beads for a clearer direction, in the actual beading, there should be no spaces.

Beaded Moon Pendant :

What you need:

1)    Glass seed beads size 11/0 (silver white)
2)    4mm pearls or crystal beads
3)    Beading string (0.25mm)

Always Remember to pull tight on EVERY STEP.


Step 1:
  • Cut a piece of beading string around 1/2 meter long.

    Add one pearl in the middle of the string (marked with the red dot) add one pearl on each side of the string and one last pearl to crisscross both string through (shown where both arrows are coming out from)
Step 2:
  • Continue:

    Add one pearl on each side of the string and one last pearl to crisscross.
Step 3:
  • Continue:

    You will be beading on one string at a time for this step:
    Take the left (black) string, add on four pearls, loop the string back up the very first pearl you just added (must go in from bottom and goes up out the top)

    Take the right (red) string, repeat the same, add four pearls, loop the string back through the first pearl added on this string.

    Add one last pearl to crisscross both strings through - remember to pull tight. 
Step 4:
  • Continue to repeat these in order:

    Repeat step 2;
    Repeat step 3;
    Repeat step 2;
    Repeat step 3;
    Repeat step 2;
    Repeat step 2;
Step 5:
  • Continue:

    Note: 
    light gray pearls are your finished work so far that you do not need to use anymore.
    Darker gray pearls are your finished work but you will need to pass strings through them in this step of beading.

    Pink Pearls are new pearls to be added from now on (still using same color pearls in actual beading)

    The red dot is where you have ended from step 4.

    So continue to pass your left (red) string through the left pearl from step 4 and pass right (black) string through the right pearl from step 4.
    Add one new pearl (represented in pink) to each side of the string and one last seed bead to crisscross both strings through. 
Step 6:
  • Continue:

    To pass the left string through the old pearl (in dark gray) on the extreme left and the right string through the old pearl on the extreme right.
    Add one new seed bead (represented in pink) to crisscross.

    Repeat this process two more times as shown in the picture. Meaning you should have added a total of four seed beads in your whole step 5 and 6.
Step 7:
  • Continue:

    On the left (red) string, add on one new pearl, pass this string further down two old pearls shown where the red arrow goes.
    On the right (black) string, add on one new pearl, pass this string further down two old pearls shown where the black arrow goes.
    The two strings should end up crisscrossing the same bottom pearl.

    Now you can loop the string back through the piece until they meet end to end and tie off, after tying off, loop the remaining string back through the piece a bit before cutting away excess.
Step 8:
  • The pendant loop:

    look at the outer top surface of the moon, at the second bead circle counting from the top.
    Cut a short piece of new string or use your left over string that you cut away if it is long enough.
    Loop one end through the pearl marked with the red line on the left picture.
    Add eight seed beads, loop the string back through the same old pearl in the opposite direction.
    Loop the string back through the moon piece until they meet end to end, tie off, loop further, cut away excess.
