Abstract Volcano makes a stunning pendant or pin. Feel free to experiment with different fringes. I like this pattern beaded in matte translucent beads (use white or gray thread), but opaque beads (use black thread) work well too. The finished size I cited is for Delicas. Of course, other beads can be used, but expect both the width and height to change.
