When was the last time you checked out http://www.artbeads.com/? If you haven't recently, check it out now! I have created this asymmetrical necklace design using one of their new Bronze pendants. It carries the quote from FDR: " All happiness is the joy of Achievement"






I used some really gorgeous teal keishi pearls (BeckHuBeads), lampwork glass discs from Serena Thomas, a faceted Labradorite nugget flanked by Vintaj brass bead caps, and some blue stick pearls separated by small bronze glass seed beads. The brass flower toggle matches the color of the pendant perfectly and to add a bit more of this bronze color, I included a small textured brass round within the keishi pearls.

  1. lorelei, i absolutely ADORE this necklace!! i love the whole design and i love love love birds! would you consider trading this necklace for my "love flies" necklace? my necklace has a gaea pendant, baroque, stick, and blister pearls in white and brown, and an actual antique key from my personal stash that i found in my old home, and the wire is sterling silver.

  7. Beautiful necklace Lori! I love the pearls, and the pendant. I think I am gonna take a PMC class or buy a book and see what I come up with. Wonder if it would just be better to buy the already great stuff that's out there or attempt things myself. Not to confident in my abilities am I?

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
