Last Friday In June

Where did the time go?
I feel like the last month (and the last 2 years) have flown by.
My daughter celebrated her 2nd Birthday on Wednesday with a trip to Build A Bear and Bugaboo Creek.
It was not the zoo trip we had planned, the weather in NY has been horrible, but we made the best day we could.
Onto the reveal!
This month we were able to pick the pendant we wanted to work with. I kept looking at this one thinking it looked like whiskers. I have never worked with a bead like this so I figured what the heck?! and chose the chunky square! Whew so out of my comfort zone but it was love at first site. But I had no idea what I was going to do.
Here is the necklace I made:
Necklace with Vintaj Chain and Silk Ribbon

Swarovski Crystals dangle off the bottom of the pendant
A handmade head pin captures the 2 Bead Sisters lampwork bead withing the square

Be sure to check out what everyone else made!!!

I really like what you did with it, so imaginative and so wearable and pretty!

I love it. The colors is wonderful. I would not have thought to use it as a frame for that lampworked bead. Very creative.

I love the mix in materials you chose...and the colors are perfect together. Well done! :D

Wow Shannon, that is really, really pretty. Love the green with the focal. The dangles are just the perfect touch!

Beautiful piece!! I love how perfectly the bead fits into the square! Gorgeous!

This is really pretty, Shannon! I love the sphere within the cube, and the way they contrast with their glossy and matte finishes. You've blended everything into a beautiful cohesive focal, and the simple ribbon and chain was all it needed!
