There are many beaded pendent necklace designs on this site, but today I will introduce you another complex pendent necklace. As you can see from the picture, the most important part is the pendent.

Instructions on making the beaded large pendent necklace:
Step 1: Bead a large hoop
1st, snip off a piece of 0.45mm tiger wire (about 100cm), then thread one end of the wire through a 8mm black glass bead, a 6mm transparent faceted glass bead, a 8mm black glass bead and 2 6mm white pearl beads in sequence;
2nd, thread the other end of the wire through the first black glass bead and tighten;
3rd, add a 6mm transparent glass bead to the left wire, and 2 6mm white pearl beads plus a 8mm black glass bead to the right wire respectively;
4th, thread the left wire through the black glass bead on the right wire and tighten;
5th, repeat above beading pattern and finish the whole beaded hoop in the end.
Step 2: String blue seed beads ornaments
1st, reserve one wire, then thread the other wire through the black glass bead and white pearl bead as shown;
2nd, thread the wire though a blue seed bead, then the white pearl bead, then add a blue seed bead again, repeat this way and string the blue seed beads ornament as pictured.
Step 3: Add yellow bugle beads embellishment
1st, thread the other wire through the black glass bead, then thread it through 8 2mm bugle beads through the wire;
2nd, thread the wire through the next black glass bead from the inner side to the outer side;
3rd, thread 8 yellow bugle seed beads to the wire again, then thread the wire trough the next black glass bead;
4th, string yellow bugle seed beads and do the same thing as the above 4 steps and finally it will end up like this.
Step 4: Finish the large beaded pendent
1st, prepare 2 iron headpins, and thread a black glass drop bead and a 12mm yellow pearl bead through them respectively;
2nd, make loops at the ends of the headpins, then attach the yellow pearl dangle to the joint between the transparent faceted glass beads and make it the center of the pendent;
3rd, hook the black glass drop bead to the pendent.
Step 5: Bead a black and white necklace strand
1st, snip off a piece of 0.45mm tiger wire (about 50cm), thread it through 3 6mm white pearl beads and a black gemstone bead;
2nd, thread the right wire through the first pearl bead and tighten;
3rd, thread 2 white pearl beads to the left wire and a black gemstone bead to the right wire, then thread the right wire through the last pearl bead you just added;
4th, repeat this beading pattern and finish the black and white necklace strand and trim off the extra wire.
Step 6: Add yellow bugle beaded patterns
1st, snip off a piece of 35cm tiger wire, mark the 1/4 of the whole strand, then thread the wire through the 6mm white pearl bead,
2nd, then thread each end through 5 yellow bugle seed beads, and cross them through the next pearl bead as pictured;
3rd, add the bugle cross ornament on the rest strand, and stop at the another symmetric point and finally trim off the extra wire.
Step 7: Finish the whole beaded large pendent necklace
1st, snip off a piece of short tiger wire, and then thread it through a blue seed bead;
