Capture a cabochon in a netting stitch to make a stunning pendant. The netting is wrapped around the cabochon and then secured by adding rows on the front and back of the pendant. Make a sleek right-angle weave chain, perfect to hang this beautiful pendant on. 

This class is appropriate for both beginners and experienced readers.

Class Fee: $25.

Kit Price: $25.

Max class size = 12
