This lesson teaches you how to make a stylish woven bezel for a cabochon.
The Odyssey pendant is a very versatile design. There are many ways to alter the technique to make it truly your own. By varying the width of the bezel or the bail, altering the spiral, or adding one of many other techniques you may already know, you can create an entirely new pendant design.
This tutorial shows how to make the Black Onyx Odyssey Pendant shown in the first picture. Tips for making the other pendants can be found at the end of the tutorial, but only the basic design is fully illustrated.
