"This is a simple design that really makes your gemstones stand out! We've used Tiger Eye and Carnelian Gemstone beads (any shape will work, but keep them quite small - 4mm to 8mm works best). This pendant can be hung onto a chain, or, like we have done, put onto a beaded necklace. Tip: if you don't have a circular mandrel, just use any approx. 30mm tube-like object you can find. Even the lid off a drink bottle will work!"
