A Little Necklace Therapy

Working with my wonderful prize!

Recently the Art Elements Blog hosted a giveaway, and I won, I won, I won!!

Here is the wonderful pendant created in ceramic by Kristie Roeder.

The colors are so vivid, it was hard to capture them with my little camera, indoors, at night. 

Here is the necklace I created with the pendant, using a bunch of glass beads from my stash. 

I didn't want to get too fancy. Had to let the pendant be the star!

Oh, no, a thief!

My cat Merry trying to steal the necklace. 

Thank you to the folks at Art Elements for sponsoring the giveaway . Here are the other designers!

  1. I love the colors of the beads that you selected for the necklace. They worked out perfectly.

  2. Very pretty - and very well matched beads.

  3. Love the colors of your focal, the beads you chose to accent it, and the fact that it's kitty cat approved! =)

  4. You did the focal justice----beautiful necklace! The last photo made me laugh out loud. I deal with the same problem every day.

  5. Great design... I love the last picture!

  6. Great job Beti, letting the focal be the star! Nice color combo, and cute kitty paw!

  7. Looks great! I wish it had been daylight so we could see it better, but it looks great from what I can see, and good plan to make Kristie's donut the star. Thanks for participating in the design challenge and for reading ArtE

  9. Merry has excellent taste- a beautiful piece!
