Drama Faces


About this design:

I had this Chinese painting pendant but could not figure out what to do with it for months. Then I see the little faces and just put the two together.

Components:

Chinese painting pendant, Czech face beads, Dzi beads, black pearls, pendant pinch bail and seed beads.

    Love your asymmetrical design! It looks kinda tribal to me. You did an excellent job with the pendant!

    thanks, all. I think I found the faces on etzy. you can just google Czech masked faces I think. I will check to see if I have it somewhere. They come in bronze too. You don’t see them often.

    They are called Dramatic Face beads and they come in bone, grey, bronze, and black. They are hard to find. Maybe Lima Beads can help you track them down. I don’t know if they are vintage and out of production.

    I love this piece. It is so different. I love to see designs that are not always the same beads one after the other. Very cool.
