Come Fly With Me

About this design:

I couldn't wait to design something with the Jade Scott pendant when I got it, but I didn't want it to just hang as a pendant. So I punched another hole in one of the bows, and tried to compliment all the colors in the kite. What do you think?


Jade Scott kite pendant, glass druks, PC bead by Beads by earth tones, golem studio round beads, Carnelian rounds and ovals(center drilled), Magnesite wavey colored spacer beads, czech glass beads, peanut seed beads, copper bead and swivel clasp.

    You nailed this Wanda! It definitely looks better than just hanging down. A delightful piece of coloeful whimsy to brighten the day! I am in love with those wavy stacked magnesite spacers!! Where on earth did you find those?

    Lovely! This is a cool combination of beads.

    I saw those wavy magnesite spacers at the store where I work part-time, and now I can imagine how to use them! (plus it is “employee appreciation” week and I can use my bigger discount)

    Definitely like the kite as part of the necklace, Wanda – - and the great thing about your design is that it could even be higher up. Love the colors and the textures of your beads, too !
