The next Artists for Animals Auction is coming up May 2 – 8, 2022, so I’ve been making things on and off to get ready. I usually just randomly make things, and then closer to the auction, I take inventory and figure out how much more I should have ready. I’m always surprised how much I’ve already gotten done.

This necklace features a purple flower pendant from Denise Peters Galloway of Crystal Emporium. I’m anxious for spring, so I used flowers, leaves and butterflies with a variety of other Czech glass and a few stone beads.

Heart shaped pendant with purple flower in it with various glass beads knotted into a necklace including leaves, butterflies, flowers and rounds. Colors are blues, clear and white, purple, silver, green and bronze.

I also made myself a necklace. I saw some inspiration in a magazine and was looking for a specific pendant in my pendants box. But instead I found a brass feather. I got out my Vintaj patinas and gave it an ombré look using marine, blue fluorite, verdigris and lapis with a little aged bronze for an accent.

Feather pendant in ombre blues with turquoise nuggets knotted with tiny faceted sodalite beads.

I knotted turquoise with tiny faceted sodalite beads. So pretty!
