I got a carved pendant by Jeni Houser Alasad.

Large carved polymer pendant with varied color of brown, blue and white.

I love the mix of colors in it, so I used a few beads with that blue in addition to a variety of stone, jasper, agate and a couple of different shapes of carved beads. A couple of the larger beads have a shape similar to the pendant.

I knotted the beads on waxed linen. The faded mauve/mulberry bead above the pendant is one I got from Candie Cooper‘s 25 Beads of Christmas. It’s fun when I can work different treasured beads into a piece. I used a Hands of the Hills toggle clasp.

The soft colors are all very lovely together. I’m really happy with the final necklace.
