DIY Beaded Cross Pendant Tutorials

Just like heart pendants and charms a cross is one design that I think never go out of style. You’ll find different designs for a cross. Crosses are made mostly of steel and some from wood. Commonly, you’ll see designs for Budded Cross, Celtic cross and the Christian Cross. Some look really simple and some with etches and markings, usually used as emblems and symbols. Whatever design a cross has they all are related to the concept of divinity and Christ.
Since Christmas is just around the corner, why not make a change? Don’t just think of Christmas as the season of gift-giving but also the day of Christ. Create beautiful cross pendants and give as gifts. I’m sure your friends and love ones will love it!

The same technique is used, but the with Lucy’s design the sides are connected by bicones. I can consider Lucy’s Beaded Cross Pattern the simplest and basic way how to create a beaded cross.

Lenne Heartly created her beaded cross flat with right angle weave but played with her seed beads and embellished the cross.

Since lenneheartly’s beaded cross is flat, using wire to weave the beads made the beadwork sturdy enough and that it won’t fold.

    1. As I have made the bicone cross and have written instructions, would it be possible to get written instructions for the pearl cross. I always like to have a hard copy since I make these for friends and family in their birthstone colors? I like the videos but I like to go slow and having to stop the video would be time consuming. Thanks

    2. I MAKE THE BEADED CROSSES BETTER
      WITHOUT WIRE

    3. I don’t like using wire because it timely and the wire often kinks. Using mono-filament makes the beaded piece curl, and thread makes the piece too sloppy. Has anyone found anything that “works”, and where can I purchase it?
