Winter Lotus

About this design:

I loved the Lotus teardop pendants I ordered, and had originally planned to use them as earrings. As I started adding layers of seed beads though, the size increased and I decided it would be better suited as a pendant.


TierraCast Lotus Teardrop Pendant, 16 g Copper Wire, 11/0, 15/0's and one teeny, tiny 2mm swarovski crystal bicone.

    Becca, such an artistic & original design idea. The stitching is beautiful, and I like how it just ‘grew’ outward as you progressed. Very nice how you inset the teardrop piece within the copper frame and worked from there. Winter Lotus is a nice name for the soft bead colors you chose to use. Now everyone can enjoy it on the home page!
