I paired this gorgeously designed bead with some tiny glass pearls and plated chain from the craft store as well as some of the 6mm XILLION bicone crystals in light siam copper from Artbeads.com. Wow, that's quite a name isn't it?!! I do LOVE the word "Xillion"!! I actually believe I am pretty safe in saying that I have never met any swarovski crystal beads that I didn't like!!
The chains I used were both 18", but once I put it on, I realized I need to shorten it just a tad. I prefer necklaces with long pendants to be sized more as chokers.
Since my design concept changed as I was working with these materials, I still have one more LARGE stoneware pendant to share tomorrow, Yay!!
And now, the moment I have been anxiously awaiting.....the very first book giveaway WINNERS are:
