Mandala - beaded pendant

Lentils... Mmm... There were one of my favourite candy when I was a kid. They weren't even available in Poland, so we were getting them always when we went to Czechoslovakia - yep, it was THAT long time ago, when it was still one country. Now you can buy similar candy almost everywhere... but is it just me, or they really don't taste like the true Lentilky? ;)

Now my favourite candy is BEADS! But now you can find lentils even amongst the beads. I got a few colours some time ago, and finally I decided to make some use out of them. This is how the "Mandala" pendant was created. The base is a net made with lentil beads, embellished with seed and fire polished beads. It measures 4cm (1,57") in diameter, and trust me - it was incredibly fast to make. I needed only one hour to complete the second, silver and blue, pendant. It's simple, yet it is quite eye-catching.

The tutorial for the pendant is available on Etsy and Craftsy.

  4. You are absolutely right! Now lentils are not the same, Im sure! Or perhaps it was a taste of youth :))))

  5. I got 2 strands of lentils a couple of weeks ago - I don't know what the color is called, exactly - they're green transparent, with sort of little brown streaks, and they flash blue & silver - almost like labradorite. They will be perfect for this :-)

  6. Nasz pies uwielbiał lentylki (te czekoladowe, tak mi się skojarzyło mechanicznie), zawsze nam podkradał, pewnie koraliki też by zeżarł bo takie są teraz kolorowe:)a mandale wyszły cudnie, naprawdę masz talent i wyobraźnię!
