Designed by Nancy Cain. Surprisingly, the interconnected 3-dimensional petal pendant is created in 2-dimensional circular peyote and then framed with 4mm bicone crystals. The netted straps with peek-a-boo windows reveal a core of 4mm bicone crystals. Make a simply elegant and innovative new toggle clasp.
Techniques: Circular/flat peyote, netting, embellishment and stringing.

2 - 8mm rondelles. These are the toggle ends. I prefer the Swarovski 5040 Briolette rondelles because the holes are not sharp and have a slight indentation that sets the 15/0 turnaround bead in a bit. It keeps it from getting snagged on things.
