Hoppy Easter

About this design:

Just wanted to hop by and show you my Easter necklace. I won the bunny pendant from Gaea in her Handmade group on Facebook. (2 years ago actually and started a necklace which didn't make me happy so put it in the *do later* box.) I was so happy because I have always wanted it. I paired it with chrysoprase, some cream carved beads and pink and blue speckled mystery beads from the $1 Bin in Walmart. These beads remind me of Cadbury Mini Eggs. There is also a little ceramic button from Gaea. Knotted on mint waxed linen.

    So so adorable! I love the green bead next to the bunny that has the brown on it. To me it looks like someone ate the candy coating off exposing chocolate below. Yummy!

    How cute are these?! Perfect combination of components. The beads remind me so much of candy eggs. That’s so true Pam-the one looks like the chocolate is exposed. Great work Deb! :)

    Love the whimsey in this design! Those mystery ‘candy egg’ beads are genius!

    I love this! It is so fun and perfect for Easter and spring! I think it has a wonderful boho-chic vibe too. It’s a great mix of elements. Great work!

    Yummy! If a little kid gets hold of this, they’ll be sorely disappointed in the taste! But it’s so so cute. The snippets of cord remind me of whiskers. Love the colors & matching bracelets. Glad you hopped by!

    Thank you everybody for all the compliments. I always appreciate them so much. So glad to hear everyone like the mystery “candy” beads also. No idea at all what they are made of…seemed a kind of white chalky material inside when I had to make a few holes bigger. And yes the Chrysoprase, I picked the stones with brown showing more on purpose.
    I almost did the necklace in all green. I did a pick here a long time ago called Chocolate Mint Bunnies with that rabbit pendant. But it just didn’t make me happy.
    Thanks again.
