Kristi Roeder, of Artisan Clay, sent me these beads this month! As usual, I waited until almost the last minute to do my work, but I had excuses - kid birthday, end of school year stuff, flooded basement, pool opening, too much to do outside, etc. etc. Just like all of you! These are her pendants made from recycled glass. They are pretty cool! You can find them on her web site and in her etsy store, although she's on vacation right now! Whatever happened yesterday when I tried to link to Kristi's etsy shop is fixed now, so here it is! ArtisanClay on etsy.
I put the pendant with gunmetal chain I picked up from JoAnn's (Plaid) and some pretty czech rondelles, banded silver beads and swarovski crystals.
Here's the detail of the dangles. I like them, the all match very well! I used some balled antiqued headpins that I purchased from Rocki on etsy.
Here's the finished piece. Although there's a clasp, this is large enough to fit over my head. I may make it a little bit shorter, so it hangs a little bit better, but I really like it.
Kristi did send us two pendants, as you may have noticed. I just didn't have enough of the right supplies to finish the second necklace; they are on order and I promise to show the finished piece when it's done!
