Triple Strand Beaded Domino Pendants


There is nothing quite like multiple strands of seed beads to compliment a special pendant.  I don’t usually take the time to bead, but these domino pendants inspired me to bust out my stash and get busy.  Fast forward 5 hours of stringing these tiny things and I have two finished pieces…’

It is a nice change from pairing pendants with a simple silver snake chain, which is what I normally do with dominoes.  I am not much of a jewelry designer, as far as putting together beaded strings with a focal pendant, but you can’t really go wrong with this simple triple strand design to display your focal.  Just drill a hole in your domino horizontally and string it like you would any other bead.  In my browsing, I found these gorgeous macrame beaded domino necklaces with instructions at Caravan Beads Blog.

domino pendant ideasI actually started the beaded macrame string, and about 2 inches into realized it was going to take way more time then I had to invest in a necklace at the present time.  It was, however,  pretty easy to pick up, and I am not familiar with macrame.  It would be a great project for a long road trip.

Now I am going to ask for your input.  What kind of necklace do you think would pair well with this piece?  I have some ideas, but I want to know yours.  If I go with your design, you may just find a domino pendant in your mailbox in the future, so don’t be shy.
