Nunn Design and Epoxy Clay TOHO Treasure Pendant on Leather Necklace
designed byBecky Dahl
TechniqueTwo-Part Epoxy Clay
Approximate Size24 Inches
I wanted to try using seed beads in an unexpected way with this project.
Seed beads are great for stitching and stringing, but they also can be used in other ways. This necklace features small TOHO Treasure seed beads embedded into epoxy clay, embellishing the design of a Nunn Design pendant.
Fill the circle space of the pendant with rows of TOHO Treasure 11/0 transparent silver-lined ice blue seed beads, embedding the beads into the epoxy clay. You can add the beads to an eye pin to see how many beads you will need for each row before pressing them into the clay. Once they are pressed into the clay, pull the eye pin free. Fill the crescent space of the pendant using the TOHO Treasure 11/0 translucent white rainbow seed beads in the same manner.
You can add silver mica powder/eye shadow to the back of the pendant if you desire, for a cleaner look on the back.
Using a 2-foot length of Leather Cord USA 1mm metallic pacific round leather, fold the leather in half. Bring the ends of the leather through the hole of the pendant. Bring them under the fold of the leather and pull tight to loop the leather around the hole of the pendant.
Add a JBB 2mm antique sterling silver crimp end cap with loop to each end of the leather and crimp in place by squeezing with pliers in the middle of each crimp.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
