About this design:

I love these little 'magatama' seed beads from Lima Beads! These have a peacock look that isn't clear from the photos. The pendant was made by simply 'torching' the copper sheet to bring out the colors, and textured with a diamond-faced hammer. I soldered a copper tube on the back for stringing.

    Very pretty and the way you torched the copper really goes well with the iridescence of those beads.
