When I get new beads, particularly art beads, it’s like having an anticipated guest come to stay. Welcome to my home I think when I open the package. Because I know they are going to be staying a while. Once they are made into a piece of jewelry, they are part of something larger. But when they first arrive, just their beautiful selves with no other distractions, I feel like welcoming them. I got two such pendants recently.
This first one is by Linda Landig. She has been making polymer clay pieces, and I fell in love with this pendant. Don’t you just love the burst of color? I’m going to try to convince myself to make this into a necklace soonish because I think it will be a great go-to necklace for summer.
