Peruvian Peach


About this design:

More of my long held stash of beads from Peru. Also another of those $1.00 peach leaf pendants from Wally World. The ribbon is a mix of satin cording & satin ribbon for a tone on tone effect/texture. Something else from the stash/mess. Closure is made by forming a large wrapped loop on one side of bead and making a small beaded toggle.

Components:

Peach ceramic leaf pendant. Ceramic beads from Peru. Wood beads. Brown seed beads. Satin ribbon & cording. Antique brass wire. Copper findings.

    Good arrangement! The beads are all interesting, and the way you’ve used the ribbon really works well with the other elements.

    Love the cording on this. Thought it was braided leather at first.
    It’s a perfect compliment to the ethnic beads.

    Thank you everyone. This started because I was messing with the cord while watching a movie. I had other beads knotted on hemp on this nece. So after playing with the ribbon one of those light bulbs went off.

    Gaaa! Flipping tiny keyboard moved and made me hit the submit button before I was done editing.
    It should say ” I had other beads knotted on hemp with this pendant.”. This is my 3rd necklace with this pendant design BTW. Should have bought that one I saw 2 weeks ago.

    Love this, that braid really adds a nice texture, can’t believe this is a 1.00 find. Becky, what is the problem with that clasp? Just had to pop in here for a second, will spent more time in the evening :D
