And i give you MARILYN MONROE! Cheesy

First time doing squarestitch, and I'll have to say, I enjoy it very much!
Actually she's quite large for a pendant, 3x7,5 cm, which is why she's hanging is just a suede-band, anything more should have been to much. The endings is made by moi as well and it closes with just a simple toggel clasp.   

I started her for a swap here on craftster, but the items we are suppose to do is mediums, and after putting about 7h work into this beauty, I didn't want to give her away ^^

And pic!



Plz, tell me what you think n_n

I like it - I like your choice of the turquoise and black.  To me, it simulates the feel of an actual piece of turquoise.  I like the use of the matte and shiny black beads - it adds some nice interest and dimension.  I would like a picture of someone wearing it to see how it drapes, especially considering the size.  I think you did a great job.  What size seed beads did you use?

This is very very cool. It looks to be a bit hard for me to try and do figuring out what goes where but you did it so wonderfully!
