Grenada Pendant

I have been visiting the website Try to Be Better for some time now.   Sabine Lippert has a wonderful design sense, and terrific patterns, and some of them are even free.  I purchased this pattern, called "Grenada" from her internet store (Link is here) The pendant is the pattern.  The pattern uses 6mm pearls, delicas, 15's, drops, and 4mm crystals. The bail not in the pattern but is just two triangles woven together at the top with a row and a half of right angle weave with delicas. 

The technique for this pendant is really interesting and goes together really well.  It is basically a version of right angle weave, and the embellishments of the crystals and 15's seed beads are done right as each motif is woven.  Sabines patterns are very well explained, and most of them are also available in English.  There are several free patterns that she also has on her website.  I highly recommend a visit to Try to Be Better
