Crystal pendant

I decided to have a go at three dimensional right angle weave stitch which I believe looks great in the 'proper' crystals - the expensive ones -  but as I only had some fire polished faceted beads I decided to try it out first with those before lashing out on the crystals.  I found it fiddly working with two needles and very fine almost invisible filament  (some very frustrating tangles and difficult to thread into needles) but once I grasped the actual concept of working the 3-d cubes and joining them to each other I was away.  I'm not entirely convinced I have the best method of hanging but this was all I had in the house and I just had to wear it once made!! I will probably rethink on this in due course.
