Well that is not how this started out. How it started is that I needed to refresh my memory on how the rows of peyote went on the back of this medallion. I didn't trust that I had done the counts right and I wanted to make sure what my math suggested when I drew it would indeed work. So I started out to remake the pendant for the book.....and then inspiration occurred when I decided I wanted to use the Swarovski encrusted components I purchased in Tucson from JP Designs.
I am in love with these....and the picture doesn't capture just how beautiful they are in real life. I have not taken them off yet. They make me feel pretty. They are elegant and sparkly and vintage looking and classy, and just the right size, and they go with everything I own....dress up or dress down they seem to work. Oh and by the way, I think that is a pretty decent wire wrap on those drops. I struggle with neat wire wrapping....goodness knows I've been shown, and rescued. Susan one time cut off all of my wraps and re-wrapped them for me. So this time I was super careful and I think they'll pass muster. Susan?
And now I want to go make six more pairs in different colors, but I won't because I have a tassel in the works that needs some beading done. The good news is it uses more of the JP Designs pieces, in beautiful silver and montana blue. I'm also using bi-cones and wild hearts and gunmetal chain. Oh, and some 2 mm crystals in with the cubic raw top that they will all be suspended from. Betcha can't wait, me either!
