Beadwork Alternate Colorway Information for Alice Coelho’s Petite Couronne Pendant

Alice Coelho’s Petite Couronne Pendant in October/November 2017 Beadwork is made with SuperDuos and fire-polished rounds stitched in right-angle weave. The back of the pendant is made from cylinder beads stitched in circular peyote. When the front and back layers are joined, you get a darling little wreath — hence the name Petite Couronne (“little wreath” in French).

In addition to the main colorway, we showed two alternate colorways in the October/November 2017 issue. Page 50 of the magazine shows a gold/gunmetal and a purple/silver colorway.

Gold and Gunmetal Petite Couronne Pendant

The gold and gunmetal colorway uses gold SuperDuos, jet Lila Vega O beads, and gunmetal seed beads and fire-polished rounds.
