Sunflower Divine

in: Necklace



This spectacular sunflower pendant from Golem Studios has gorgeous detailing and a wonderful palette.  It's a large piece,  45mm ( about 1 1/2") and I wanted to do it justice without overwhelming the cabochon.  I used metallic superduo beads in copper and bronze, and seed beads in cream, chocolate, and matte bronze to bead weave a "frame" around it.  I think it compliments very well and the focus remains on the lovey flower.  In keeping with simplicity, the necklace is hand-knotted on pale ginger cord, and has peanut seed beads, sunflower hued crystals, and vintage Czech glass beads in mottled cream.  It closes with a bright copper toggle.  The pendant measures 2 1/2" across, and the necklace is about 19" long.  This was a joy to make, and hopefully a joy for someone to wear.
