Learn how to bezel a gemstone using Circular Netting Stitch. I called the pendant Blue Star Burst, suggested by some friends and followers on Facebook. The facade of the Circular Netting Stitch is embellished with lt. beige to almost white pearls, as if light is radiating from the center of the pendant. Underneath the beadwork is a clear gemstone making it almost invicible to the eyes.
The tutorial is suitable to advanced skill levels. One must have full knowledge of Circular Netting Stitch, basic Right Angle Weave and Peyote Stitch.
