"Yummers" says it all for me on this piece.  I worked and worked and re-worked the colors to come up with a final combination on the 2-hole triangles that spoke to me.  This combination sang loudly - and I had my aha moment!  Love those times when you just know, cuz you feel it, see it and hear it!  A pattern designed by Agnieszka Watts, a Starman Trendsetter, from Bead and Button, with my own design for the closure, adding in some 3mm fire polish for adventure.  A fun new look for a button closure.



A design by Robijo Burzynski called Equilateral Earrings!  The project was for earrings, but the size was more conducive for a pendant - and it was kind of time consuming on my first go-round.  Love the way it turned out though and the angles of it all - the tubular peyote, along with the herringbone stitch, really makes this pattern unique.  Very different styling for me and well worth the effort!    I saw the design in the June/July 2016 BeadWork magazine and just had to try it.  These colors are perfect for my spring wardrobe.  In fact turquoise is kind of a staple with me - in all shades from light to dark. 

Some darling little beaded bead earrings to go with - I didn't make them to go with the pendant, but they sure do!  Love it when that happens.  Right now I'm definitely into this color combination can you tell?



I'm striving to make lighter earrings, as my own earlobes need a rest once in awhile.  As my hair has gotten longer, my earring tastes seem to be moving towards longer... so the art of my creations can still be seen through the hair!  The trick is trying to perfect "light" and artistry at the same time.  I'm always on the look out.  Here are my latest "lights".  So adorbs... both of 'em for different reasons.  Beaded beads linked together from an Emi Yamada pattern - they hang so nicely and lightly flow with movement.  Or, butterflies in flight from Vezsuzsi .  I posted the bracelet of this same pattern on April 8.  Now, this makes a darling combo!
