Finally! Tutorial for the "Polaris" pendant is finished! :)

At first let me apologize that you had to wait for it quite a long time... There were a few things though that didn't leave any time at all for me to do some beading. I knew that some of you could hardly wait for it, and I must admit it was quite motivating. :) So thank you for your patience and I hope you will like the tutorial.

I named the pendant "Polaris", because most of you could see a star in it. :) It isn't very difficult, not more than the rest of my twisted peyote patterns. But passing through the beads in the final rows can be more than challenging! Pliers were a must for me this time, so you might consider using them too - otherwise it can be really hard to hold the needle at some points. I would suggest trying to make the other twisted pendants before attempting at this one really. If you are already familiar with these twists, it is much, much easier.

This version of "Polaris" is made with Delica beads, and as they are slightly smaller than Toho Treasure, the entire pendant is a bit smaller too. By the way, it was the first time when I made something with galvanized Delica (#462, so not duracoat) and I was a bit afraid that the color might rub off. To my greatest surprise it survived all the twisting, turning, distorting and all the other torture the beadwork has gone through. That was a nice surprise then. :)

So, here you can see the pendant, and here you can find the tutorial. Enjoy! :)
