I found these pretty flower pendants at Michael's, and they were just dying to be necklaces.

**Disclaimer: My husband was more interested in taking artsy fartsy pictures of me than getting good pictures of my necklaces.**

I LOVE asymmetry. This one wears awkward though because the pendant is too heavy. It keeps wanting to slip down. (Ignore my face. This was after way too many of said artsy pictures.)

C/C welcome! Thanks for looking!

Both of these are really, really cute, though I like the first one best!

The trouble with asymmetry is that your creation still needs balance! The heaviest bit of your necklace needs to be at the front, so perhaps some big black glass beads in the front would help. You could alternate them with the smaller ones or just do a row of them followed by the smaller ones - I think either way would look good. Faceted beads, if you can find them big and heavy enough, are very 20s and would make a nice contrast with the round beads. (Or maybe I am just obsessed with sparkle Embarrassed) Just put enough in to hold the pendant where you want it Cheesy

they are both really cute.  What i found out recently is putting the pendent on the side with like 2 rows of beads to balance it out.  But i really love the pendants you used

That's too funny. I work at Micheals and I've been avoiding those pendants so I can keep my paycheck. I love the first one. So dainty.
