I didn’t make nearly as many things this weekend as last weekend, but it’s just a regular weekend and not a long one. I switched from earrings and made a necklace and a pendant.

Necklace with black vertical rectangle connector pendant with variety size and color dots painted on it. An open work place flower with a tiny gold and peach tassel hang from the bottom of it. the necklace strand is a variety of purple beads with peach and turquoise accents. There is a copper toggle clasp.

This dot pendant is from Yvonne Irvin-Faus. I love dots, so this dots within dots is really my kind of thing. I also got the black flower connector and tiny turquoise O rings from her shop My Elements. I wanted to play up the colors in the pendant, so I added the tiny peach tassel and used a similar color waxed linen so the peach peeks out in addition to the turquoise rings. I used a few different purple beads, primarily mermaid beads from Allegory Gallery. Their glow includes other pendant colors like blue and pinkish. This will be in the Artists for Animals Auction.

I got some mixed new old stock Swarovski crystals from Famous Bead Hoard Liquidation Destash and thought it would be cool to fill a bezel with them randomly using Apoxie Sculpt. This was inspired by Christi Friesen’s Bling Ghoulie (I have one).

I used a Nunn Design bezel (that coincidentally I got from Christi’s shop) and had fun stuffing it as full as possible with the crystals. I kept taking pictures and video and finding more space! Here is a little video of it when I called it done. Now it’s just curing.

Here is a photo, but I think the video captures it better – the sparkle!

This is a round bezel pendant with another offset hole near the middle top. The closed parts of the bezel are filled with all different size, shape and colors of crystals.

I cleaned the inside edge up a little more after I saw this photo as well.
