About this design:

I fell in love with this beautiful pendant made by Gaea. The colors are earthy and the finish feels very organic. I was able to use some of my vintage component stash along with new components to complete a bar link beaded chain. So fun to make!

    This is just awesome. I love it. I wish I could have a whole wardrobe of this type of jewelry and the matching clothes. But I’m 80 and everything I own says “OLD.” But this is a great piece of art as well as something to wear and look smashing.

    This is great. The design is so well-balanced – the colors, the chain, the spaces in between. Somehow it is very modern, but still has a vintage vibe. Love it!

    Great piece! I love the color pop against the black & gunmetal–you picked perfect beads to complement the pendant. I really like the effect of the bar links in the design too. Super work! Hope to see some more of your designs! :)

    Love this! I have this exact pendant and some different colored beads. I am still on the hunt for matte gunmetal chain si I can finish it.

    Nice work.
