With this tutorial you will learn how to make a Pearl Star Capture pendant. This can be made from Stainless Steel rings and 6mm or 8mm round pearls. There's also an optional section to capture a Rivoli. An intermediate level tutorial, with full written step by step instructions and illustrations.


I take no credit for coming up with the star using just pearls and would like to thank Kenth of 925maille for permission to write this tutorial. I was inspired by a photo from 2013 and enjoyed figuring out this design. I loved also creating the Rivoli capture part it adds another style to the design.


This pendant has been tested with rings from Metal Designz and Joshua Diliberto in Stainless. I can’t guarantee it will work with any other metal or supplier. Finished Stars measure just larger than 1" in diameter.


Kits are available at Metal Designz! in Pearl or Titanium
