PENDANT MAKES THE PIECE!
I just celebrated my SIXTIETH... wow! I'm not sure I was ready for that big number -- no, I can categorically admit, I WAS NOT ready. But luckily, each day follows the next, so I am trying to just be grateful for all that I have, which includes my love for beading. It truly keeps me sane some days. And, in that vein, I have a new piece to show you! My sister gave me a gorgeous pendant for my big day (both the top and bottom rotate with a stone on both sides), and I decided it needed an equally gorgeous necklace and earrings -- see my finished project below--I just happen to love lapis, and I already had all the beads I strung in my stash, which was an added bonus. I don't know what the green stone is, so if anyone does, please let me know.. The combination of these two colors is so fall. See what you think.
