Today we introduced our nee Vibrant 35 x 20mm Murano Rectangle Beads. These are rather large to use in bracelet designs, so I decided to combine them with a couple Swarovski Bicones to create a quick and easy pendant in no time.
Because the bead is such a large size, I used a 3" sterling silver headpin to make the wrapping much easier. I used the Ruby Murano bead combined with light siam 4mm Swarovski bicones. You'll need a pair of round nose pliers and a nipper to for your wrapped loop.
I added 1 bicone to the top and bottom of the bead to give it a bit of an accent, making sure not to overwhelm the focus of the murano pendant.
Create a simple wrapped loop and your pendant is ready to go! Quick and easy!
