About this design:

This piece is totally inspired by the focal pendant. I loved the bright color of the flowers, and the piece's size needed to be dominant.


Painted shell focal pendant, white and clear glass E beads, bright pink pearls, and wood rounds, with a silver magnetic clasp.

    I recently learned how to make beaded rings – this is the perfect use for them – wirewrapping or a metal bail would compete with the beautiful design on your pendant! :)

    Thanks ladies! I agree that a metal or wire-wrapped bail would have been too much. I am not sure if those are orchids or not, but I am starting work on a blue/green/brown one now! Can’t wait to get it finished!
