I have had a fabulous ceramic heart pendant by Maku Studio for several years. I have long considered it one of my most precious art beads. I couldn’t imagine what beads I would use with it. But I have gotten some great gemstones lately. I enjoy the Dakota Stones live sale on Monday evenings. I bought some large nugget sapphires and thought they would go great with the pendant. I was right.

Necklace with red heart pendant inside corset encasement that looks like burned metal. Necklace art is irregular shape and size sapphires and metal accent beads.

I wanted to add metal accents just like the pendant has metal accents. I thought of round beads I had in the Ancient Relic patina from Supply Your Soul. Perfect. I also used tiny brass ox spacers. I knotted the necklace on grey waxed linen.

This turned out just as I had hoped.
