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!

Using the right angle weaving technique you’ll be able to make a simple but sparkling cross pendant.The cross is compose of 2 flat crosses from 5mm and 4mm bicones. These 2 flat right angle weaved crosses are then connected at the sides by 11/0 seed beads.

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.
