About this design:

I saw a piece in a magazine called to the moon and I really liked it, I decided since I didn't have a moon pendant I would do a sun version. I'm really unsure of my version and could use some feedback and ideas if you have any. thanks, cindy


tibetan sun pendant, lavender cross pearls, goldstone beads, light amythist sw crystal rondells

    Nice design, and I love that pendant! The only thing I might change would maybe be the pearls, but I’m not sure what I would use in their place. I’d hav to think about that one. :)

    Thanks ladies, I think I’ve decided to use the pearl crosses but to pick out the smallest ones I have, that way they will be in better balance with the other beads. If that doesn’t work then I’ll try it without. I just don’t want to spend a month on it like I did the Lapis one, that necklace was taken apart and redone I don’t know how many times!!!

    I liked the pearls with it. You’ll have to show it to us with the smaller ones if you decide to change it. SLS
