I struggle with multi-strand jewelry. My problem is part a rigid idea of perfection in my mind and part a need to increase my skill in making multi-strand pieces. I fell in love with these round abstract pendants from Nancy Schindler Adams of Round Rabbit. Everything about them just makes my heart go pitter-pat. (I also have an idea for the little hankie pendant, but that is further down on my to-do list.)
The mix of colors in the pendants is so great, I wanted to use multiple strands for at least one of them to bring that out. I looked through my stash and found several beads to use with the top pendant. I had decided on two strands, and was sort of waiting for a third strand with a bit of the right yellow to come my way. Jade Scott has recently been putting great beads (other than what she makes) in her shop. When I got my order last week, I was ready to go.
I really like the way it turned out. I like the various colors, textures and sizes in the strands. I think the strands mesh together in a nice way, and I’m actually satisfied with how they hang. Amazing!
