I started down the craft road as a beader and for a long time did nothing but beadwork.  Then I learned to crochet, and sew, and weave.... and my beads didn't get out much.   Lately I've started to get the urge to play with them again and have some finished projects to show off!

The pendant I started over a year ago and just lost all enthusiasm for (all that wire wrapping!)... but I'm super glad I finished it, I think the end product is pretty special.   The chain necklace I whipped up much faster, it's a simple asymmetrical dealie.   Wink    It's good to have finished projects to show!

[excuse the large images!]

I demand a tut for the 1st one.
Just kidding.
But I adore it, and the one green bead pulls it all together.

Thanks for the kind words guys.  The first one was a lot of work so it needs some love!   (I wondered about the one green bead but felt I needed to throw it in.)

Anyone looking for instructions should track down the Ondori book "Beads and Wire"  (ISBN 4889961143), the instructions I used were for a picture frame embellishment, modified to make a pendant (pg 25).   =)
