Designed by Nancy Cain.
This unique pendant necklace uses stone donuts in a new way. No more beading
around the stone. The stone donut will face forward without any armature to support it- just beads and thread. The project pays attention to the physics required to support and suspend a heavy stone
donut, so that it will lay flat and hang facing forward without armature- just beads and thread. It is simple in appearance, yet requires a great deal of attention to a few specific points of construction.
