A Penchant for Pendants

I looked through my stash the other day and saw how many pendants I have and realized I needed to stop hoarding and start using them. (Yes, I have a problem. I have a hard time letting go. Is it bad that I stare at my collections and coo "My pretties."? Please don't call the authorities. Yet...)

The necklace on the left came about from starting a bracelet using the same turquoise bead but that was about the only similarity. It features a beautiful pendant made by Nancy Schindler of Round Rabbit.

I always marvel at how you can start out making one thing and somewhere along the way you take a left turn and you have something completely different! Later on, I did end up making the bracelet I had initially planned.

This czech glass melon bead chain was perfect to complement the colors in Jade Scott's cute owl pendant. I have quite a few of both artists' pieces in my stash. I plan on using more of them in upcoming projects if I can deal with my pack rat tendencies...

I will be at Greene's Annual Arts & Crafts Festival once again this year. It is tomorrow, July 23th, from 9:00AM - 4:00PM. My tent will be in the same place as last year. (The map, above, shows a portion of the festival's layout and where I will be located: Booth 206.)
