Sponsored by Toho Beads, the Sophia Medallion is reminiscent of webbed filigree medallions and costume jewelry brooches. The base is worked in flat circular netting with size 6° Demi Round beads. The base is embellished with multiple layers of size 8° Demi Round beads and 4mm glass pearls. A warped square bail, embellished with pearls, is stitched with size 8° Demi Round beads and compliments the medallion. You can stitch a beaded rope for the carrier or slide it onto chain, silk cord or an Omega necklace
