Here is the first of the three Beading by the Bay pendants I completed.
Only, as sometimes happens the button I originally chose was no longer available in quantity. I needed at least 36......so it was time to look for a suitable replacement. Well, not just merely suitable (suitable brings to mind, one that will do). I didn't want to compromise this design at all, with so many participants looking forward to this color way.
I sourced one I thought would work but it turned out the size was not right.
For the bezel to fit, it needed to be 1 1/4" so I knew it was going to be challenging. But I think I succeeded brilliantly with this custom painted button from Susan Clark Originals.
They have been a pleasure to do business with, going through potential options with me and finally coming up with this one. The bottom drop is a verde custom coated Swarovski drop and the pretty little closure bead is a Czech rivoli. Such a soft, romantic color palette.
