After posting the foundations yesterday, I added a bit more to the first one:
The center accent is a 6.5mm Akoya pearl surrounded by beige Czech seed beads.
A few extra rounds of overtatting and chain weaving were added for good measure.
All I need to do now is attach the jumpring finding and perhaps add a "bead dangle" to the bottom- one of my sterling silver or pewter pine cones.
Here is another view of the piece:
Doesn't seem so subtle, does it? Care to suggest a new name for this pendant anyone?
I think I shall see what I can do with the other foundation. It may be altered a bit before I start adding accents. There are a couple of design ideas floating around in my head and I am debating adjusting my counts. Hmmm... decisions, decisions.
The beads and pearls are waiting so I'd better get busy. Have a great day!
