Bead Hoarders Blog Hop

Welcome to Lori Anderson's 
Second Annual
This will be my first time joining.

For this Blog Hop I pulled out this 
Golem Studio pendant from my stash.
I think it is one of the pretties of the Golem Pendants. 
Even on sale it is on the pricey side for me.
So there it sat in my collection.
 I thought this Gaea Ceramic bead went nicely with it.
I got to the top of it with the knotting and then
 I couldn't decide how I wanted to proceed.
Did I want it hang from I long chain?
Did I want to add ribbon...hang it from some leather cord?
Scrounged around for coordinating beads...
I want them to be a supporting cast to the pendant...
not to over power it.
I found these coral cats eye beads.
 Hmm they might work?
 I only had a few since they were gifted to me.
The faceted green rondell cat's eye might work pretty good
 and a few of these Bronzite beads might just do the trick..
Based on these beads I went with a choker length necklace.
I love this chain too which I have also been hoarding. 
This seemed to be a perfect time to use it. 
The magnetic clasp makes it easy peasy to put on and off.
I could see wearing this 
with a nice crisp cotton collard shirt.

What a beautiful focal I can see why you were hoarding it for just the right thing and I see you found it. The Gaea Ceramic bead is perfect, and the rest of the composition is delightful. Enjoy wearing your new piece.

The whole necklace is very nice. I enjoyed reading about how you choose each component. The chain could have been the centerpeice. I've never seen on like it

Skye said...

Oh what a perfect 'chain' to complement that pendant! Beautiful work :) Now for the big question...is this pretty moving from your bead hoard to your jewelry hoard? Or it is leaving the nest completely? lol

Terri said...

Thank You all so much for all the wonderful comments... I appreciate each and everyone of them!!

Skye ...this pretty as you say...will be going in to my sell stash for my next Bead Show. If it doesn't leave the nest it may make it's return to my jewelry stash. ;)

Nan Smith said...
