More Bead Fantasies
Another medallion from Bead Fantasies II p. 27 by Takako Samejima. It is hard to find the small semiprecious stones, but they are really precious when you do. This one has goldstone 2mm goldstone on the outside, with 4mm firepolish. A 6mm chaton montee is the centre. The patterns uses the 2 needle technique, however I did it with one needle and it worked with a little problemsolving to figure out how. I put a small jumpring on the back to attach this to a ring or chain.
