How to make a graduated necklace with a bezelled pendant – jewellery tutorial | Design Team | Blog

Here a BD HQ the graduated necklace design has always been a popular design, so I decided to bling it up with a bezelled pendant. This glamorous necklace can be created and adapted in so many ways, it is definitely one of my firm favourites and I never get bored of making it. The light grey cat’s eye beads I have used are just perfect and give off a lovely effect.

How lovely are the designs below using Swarovski and CrystaLove 🙂

How pretty do these look?

With the simple step by step instructions for the graduated necklace, which you will find HERE, all you need to do is follow Sarah’s tutorial on how to bezel a cabochon and away you go! I slightly adapted Sarah’s bezelled pendant but feel free to have a go at making it your way.

To attach the pendant, cut a 20cm length of thread, tie onto the necklace. Thread on 20x size 15/0 seed beads and go through the loop a couple of times. Tie off and cut off any excess thread:
