Materials You Needed

Step 1: Design Your Pendant

Begin by selecting a design for your pendant. This could be anything from a simple geometric pattern to a intricate floral motif or even a personalized monogram. Sketch your chosen design onto the base fabric using a pencil or fabric marker, making sure it fits within the dimensions of your pendant bezel.

Step 2: Prepare Your Fabric

Layer your base fabric with iron-on interfacing to provide stability and structure. Place the fabric in an embroidery hoop to keep it taut and secure while you work. This will help ensure precise stitching and prevent any puckering or distortion of the fabric.

Step 3: Stitch Your Design

Thread your embroidery needle with your chosen colors and begin stitching your design onto the fabric. You can experiment with different embroidery stitches such as satin stitch, backstitch, or French knots to add texture and detail to your pendant. Take your time and enjoy the process of bringing your design to life with each stitch.

Step 4: Finish and Assemble

Once you’ve completed your embroidery, carefully remove the fabric from the hoop and trim any excess fabric from the edges. Apply a small amount of fabric glue to the back of the fabric to secure it in place.

Next, place the embroidered fabric into the pendant bezel setting, ensuring it fits snugly. Use fabric glue to secure the fabric to the setting, then allow it to dry completely.
