This piece is called Sundial and is one of my Bead and Button submissions. You may notice the influence of my master class components. This is a spirit flight component but turned over with a pearl center and an extra row of picots around the latter stitch start both interior around the pearl and exterior, the aqua seeds.
The cubic right angle weave consists of curves and angles, my favorite use of cubic right angle weave. A hidden bail and a ribbon necklace finish off the pendant.
I love the shape and I can see the color appeal for some, but I am tempted to bead it again before submitting the catalog photo. I think there is something about this color brown that just reminds me of the ups truck.....I love the caribbean opal crystal tips, and the platinum pearl, but still I just can't quite get behind the combination.
Do you have color quandaries? Go to colors? Pieces that just don't quite speak to you? I'm going to give it a go with 460K bronzy green seeds, some pale matte aqua, and a bronze pearl center.....the crystals, not sure yet. I'll keep you posted!
