Amethyst Caged Octahedron Beaded Bead Pendant

I wove this octahedral beaded bead from Japanese seed beads and the amethyst beads I bought at the Rings and Things show last week. I just had to make something with the amethyst right away and this beaded bead works up relatively quickly. Combined with a wire-wrapped sterling silver headpin and a cord, it makes a lovely little pendant!

I had originally thought to use some Palladium-plated seed beads in the color scheme for this bead, but settled on the colors in one of Margie Deeb's many color schemes. I highly recommend both of her books on color for beaded jewelry! She also has a free monthly newsletter and a Podcast. This particular color scheme is in The Beader's Color Palette.


  1. Wow, I was already a fan of Margie Deeb & now I'm even more impressed, thanks to your fine work!


  2. I love beaded beads and this one is very pretty!

  3. Thanks so much! I'll have to try out more of Margie Deeb's palettes in the future.

    Thanks Triz! Stay tuned for more beaded beads in the near future! ;)
