About this design:

This is a "budget" project. I had the pendant and beads from a set I got at JoAnn's with a coupon for a long time. I liked the colors. I added some vintage lucite and Czech glass, and voila! I hope to sell it at my very first show next month!


Sunflower pendant, glass pearls, crystals, Czech glass, lucite rounds, natural brass chain, antique brass clasp.

    Oh, I think you can bet this one will go quickly! Love the sunflower pendant, and chunky beaded chain. And the sweet flower toggle is a perfect finish to this piece.

    Van Gogh would have been very pleased with the combination ;-) The necklace is a perfect compliment to the pendant.

    Very pretty and unexpected. The beaded chain complements the pendant perfectly, and gives the whole piece a rough, cottagey rural look. I can almost see the sunflower fields …. :D

    I second to what Mary said, great use of colors, love the double chain, have been playing with similar idea, but mine lengths don’t match, so I can’t connect them both to the pendant, I know practise makes perfect :D
