This month, our lovely components were created by Sue Kennedy of SueBeads. Sue is an amazing glass artist, and if you are familiar with my work, you will see that she is one of my favorites! Her beads are always consistent and lovely! Expecting nothing less for the challenge components, I was thrilled and excited to receive mine!
I have to admit, I went through about 5 designs before I decided on a necklace, but once I decided it would be a focal pendant on a chain, it sort of made itself!
I had an etched brass disk, just waiting to be used, and I decided I wanted the pendant to also be a toggle, so I punched out a 1/2 inch hole with my disc cutter, then riveted the lovely bead with one of my double headpins swirled around in the back. To bring out the pretty purple Sue edged the bead with, I dangled a small amethyst briolette from the bottom.
Unfortunately, I didn't punch in the spot I had measured and it sort of hangs a bit wonky, so I may have to play around with figuring out how to fix!
