(Pendant finished with silver chain customer provided)
I had the pleasure of working on a really meaningful birthday gift this past week. My customer asked if I could do a pendant with more leaves (or would it be too bulky?). I told her I could make them smaller so that it would not be too big.
The idea behind this pendant was to have each of the 5 grandchildren pick their favorite color for a leaf, then go from there. I received this nice little write-up which I thought was so adorable, and helped me in the process.

Now this wasn't exactly a mix of colors that you would think to put together, but luckily seed beads comes in all shapes, sizes, finishes and colors. So I pulled what I thought would be the best color mix of these suggestions. I did a couple of different arrangements, this one seemed to make the most sense at the end of it all, so I sent this image to my customer:
(faceted dk red leaf, fancy finish dk red leaf, silver lined aqua leaf,
rainbow finish blue leaf & matte finish copper leaf)
She's is so wonderful to work with because she just loves everything, first try. Which makes working with her a dream. The package went out on Tuesday afternoon and I have to say, I was so excited to send it out!
