Arabian Nights Necklace

Every time I attend the Gem Faire in Costa Mesa California, I find these beautiful Micro Pave CZ pendants, I just love them!!!
When I went in February of this year, I bought this pendant, then I added the cone and some tassel, made with black 3x2 mm Chinese Rondelles and seed beads.
I strung 3x4mm black Rondelles with 6mm freshwater pearls.
It looks very expensive. One of my favorite necklaces.
I bought quite a few pendants, so I will be posting soon about them.

Janet Pendant

I made this pendant using Puca's pendant.  I also used Puca's beads calles Arcos and Minos.
She has been coming up with fantastic bead shapes.( I want them all, but it takes time for the new beads to arrive to the Unites States)
This pattern I found on this French bead website and you can find the pattern wich is in French, with excellent pictures, HERE
This tutorial is for a component that I used as a pendant, I attached the bead tassel and I used a lobster clasp so I can use different chains or cords. I also inserted a 12mm Crystal rivoli in the middle.
What do you think of this pattern?
