But as you can see from this picture, the results were less than stellar.
In a word....yuck! I don't know what I was thinking. Well, actually I do. I was thinking I was going to make this absolutely stunning, complex, over the top bead embroidered pendant that would have people sighing "Oooh!" and "Aaah!" And that's just not me. I definitely want my bead work to be considered stunning, but I also want it to be classy & elegant. So I scrapped this whole idea and decided to go back to what I do best, good ol' classy & elegant. Here's what I came up with.
Now this is more like it! This is me! Only three colors; lavender, green, & gold with some fabulous beaded beads designed by yours truly, faceted amethyst nuggets, and of course, Swarovski crystal.
Of course I can't end this post without letting you all know that I'm still dancing strong at 50 days and 2,274 hours.
