Octagonal Ornament

Still experimenting with turning my earring patterns into holiday ornaments. For this ornament, I used my Octagonal Earrings pattern with the following changes:

  • Instead of 8 feet of 6 lb. FireLine, I used 2 yards of 8 lb. FireLine.
  • Instead of 11/0 seed beads, I used 8/0 seed beads.
  • Instead of 3mm fire-polished beads, I used 4mm fire-polished beads
  • Instead of 4mm bicone crystals, I used 6mm bicone crystals.
  • I used a larger 4mm jump ring, which I attached to a hook.
  • In Step 22 and Step 24, I went back around through the beads again to make the ornament stiffer and less floppy.
It's about 2.25 inches long and 1.5 inches wide:
