I decided to make a pendant piece which I could wear this winter:
The finished pendant necklace just glows with ambient lighting. I used just five of the pearls as my focal point for the pendant. 3 strands of Japanese delica beads surrounding each pearl to add interest, and the peyote stitching adds to the overall piece, as well as functions as a beaded bail. I purchased a strand of smaller olive pearls to use as the necklace.
This is a beginner’s beading project, by the way. All you need is a quick lesson in flat peyote in order to create it. There is an elegence in the simplicity of the pendant, I believe.
My first Project I designed for this program was the quilted and freeform beaded bag with the lovely copper enamel pendant. My next project will feature some Swarovski Crystals that I showed the other day. I love the challenge to create something original using a variety of materials.
Keep watching to see what I make for my next ArtBead challenge! Hugs, Carla
