Back before I knew about art beads, I made a necklace I absolutely loved with hot pink rondelles and turquoise venetian glass rectangles.  It was really beautiful, but I took it apart in recent years because I stopped wearing the more delicate styles I used to make. I like a chunkier look now, but that doesn’t mean I stopped liking that color combination.

When I saw a feather pendant with those exact colors by new-to-me artist Nicole St. Laurent of Raven’s Meadow, I was thrilled! I found a great strand of irregular turquoise nuggets and paired that with some of those hot pink rondelles from my earlier necklace. 

I love how each color makes the other pop.  I also like all the texture created by the irregular nuggets and in the pendant.
