Just look at these delicious pendants by Lesley Watt though, they're enough to make you go a littl crazy...
I was of course super stoked to win the draw for one of these beauts, but finding enough time to get a design together was a bit of a stretch! I went with a simple strung design in the end, playing with the delicious natural colours in the pendants glaze. I had a half a set of lampwork beads by Judith Billig that displayed just the right tones. Some Czech glass, carved bone and Bali-style copper came together to create this rustic, sea-side toned design.
Normally I would spend a little more time finessing the design, moving beads about a bit and getting the flow right. I'll be taking this to Asia with me along with a not-so-little travel beading kit I have put together, so I'll probably be finishing this off on a tropical beach somewhere - seems appropriate!
Many thanks to the Art Elements team for giving me this opportunity to join in with their fun challenge one last time before I head off! I hope you will visit the other participants and enjoy seeing what they have made :)
