Gothic Cross and Trident Pendants Beaded with Peyote Stitch

Beaded Cross Pendant
I came up with a pointed finial design, and when I put four of them together, they made a perfect cross.  I think the style is classically Gothic. So that's what I named it. The tutorial explain how to weave seed beads into both crosses and tridents.

To inspire you to learn the techniques and make them your own, a page of illustrations includes other designs using the techniques this pattern describes.

These pendants feature the new Toho Demi Round Beads. Just add 2 sizes of regular seed beads, round beads, and an optional rivioli. The difficulty level is suitable for intermediate bead weavers who like tubular peyote stitch with step ups. If you know what that means, you can probably pick up 10 grams of Demi Round 11° and start beading from your stash.
The tutorial is 17 pages, with over 115 full color illustrations and photographs. The tutorial gives highly detailed instructions for every step in making the two pendants.  Thanks for looking.


  1. Hi Gwen, do you have to use demi rounds for this tutorial? Can't get them in the UK yet :)

    1. That's a good question. I don't know. I haven't tried it yet.
