Crochet necklace with Aztec Influence. It has a kind of retro and exotic glamour. I also included some how to notes on how to use Brick Stitch to create a pendant with a large round bead.

The following are just some photos of the work in progress. I played around with a couple of different beads so I will show whatever photos I have. Some brief, explanatory DIY notes are included.
Brick stitch around chosen bead. And build up. You may have to use larger sized beads as you progress outwards.
Fold over brick stitch.
Ladder stitch to join edges.
Add edging to hide sides of joining (ladder) stitch row. At the same time, attach loop. The loop is for attaching to the bail later. I used wire guard here to create that loop.
Finishing up the pendant.
