Pearly Pendant

Isn't this a gorgeous mother of pearl pendant? It is just the perfect size, not too big or too small. It has a beautiful silvery frame and bail attached! The colors and shine are beautiful! Very impressive for $1.95!

I'm sure you already guessed I picked this up at the recent Rings&Things bead show. Now that I see how pretty it is, it's a shame I didn't dig through the huge container for a few more! I was actually practicing a little restraint!! How about that? :)

My instincts tell me to slide a chain through the bail for a beautiful necklace. However, I visit many blogs of bead stitchers and imagine that one of them would create a fabulous, extensively beaded neck cord for this piece........OR, slide this onto any one of the various colored neck wires or chokers, add a few beads and you can customize it for any outfit!!

Love it!!

Have a good one!!

Love this one...I'm a huge fan of mop though.
As you mentioned there is so much you could do with this...will be interesting to see what you choose!

Cheers

What a pretty piece. If it could be taken off a heavily beaded project and used occasionally alone, you'd get your cake and be able to eat it too.

And some of us wouldn't be able to stop ourselves from adding a bezel. It's very pretty and gets my creativity going....I have an old piece with something like it....hmmm.....
