Busy Bee

About this design:

This is another exercise in letting go of my focal bead hoard. I'm finally using some of the bees that have buzzed their way into my collection!

I had a hard time figuring this one out and procrastinated by making two other bee pieces.

    So pretty! Adorable pendant. I can see why it’s hard to part with him. I like the simplicity of a few stones on one side and the tiny seed beads on the other. Great asymmetrical feel.

    Thanks so much everyone! This isn’t how I originally imagined it, but I think it’s better that what I had in mind to start with. I still have this pendant in another color glaze…we’ll see how that one turns out.
