Another cross pendant design from XQ Design. This time round I am using chain maille techniques. To be specific, the design is based on full Persian weave. The weave is applied commonly in bracelet and necklace.

Step 1 to step 9 will show you the basic of making full persian weave and the subsequent steps will show you how to make the cross. The cross is using stainless steel rings with diameter of 8cm. For beginner, I would suggest that you practice the weave using bigger rings. This is one of the harder weaves to understand at first, but it gets easier.
