    I agree that the seed beads add texture and interest to this already gorgeous necklace. Your design decision really paid off.

    OMG…how pretty!!!I love the pendent! And love your backgrounds…sometimes I don’t know which is more fun. Making the jewelry or taking the pictures. I love both!
    Thanks for sharing!

    I know! Those “magatama” (actually they are a fringe bead) beads are so darn cute. You paired them beautifully with the red creek jasper.

    But I have to know how you did that pendant! Did it come pre-made or did you (as I suspect) make it?

    Hi all, and thanks so much! I did set the stone, (it’s actually a bead) in the pendant. I did a similar piece last year for the same show, that was the first to sell, so I’m hoping this one does as well.
