All along I've been rather indecisive as too what I actually wanted, in fact I've put together and taken apart my ideas 6 times before I decide on the necklace below... I'm rather happy with the results...
Turquoise Song wood pendant necklaceI've also added a photo of just the necklace as I decided there should be more than one way to wear the pendant and the necklace...as a combo yes...but besides being attached to the stone necklace, the pendant would be great hung simply from a black leather cord, black ribbon, or combine both the leather and ribbon! Or hang the pendant from a sterling silver chain...I tried all these ways and a few more which is the reason I felt the pendant shouldn't be limited to being worn one way! The best of both worlds!
I didn't photograph the necklace with the pendant on a bust as one of the bails came off and I had to glue it back on twice...I didn't want to delay this post anymore so I decided to show the necklace and pendant as is!
As you can see ...I've used the amazonite nuggets, as well as some amazonite chips, and the African jade nuggets... from Artbeads.com I've used my stunning Turquoise Song wood pendant, the malachite jasper rice beads, 4 sterling silver shell beads, and the sterling silver fish toggle . I've also used lead and nickle free pewter sun faces, along with a few sterling silver beads.
I enjoyed myself browsing through Artbeads.com where you will find many wonderful products, check out their unique and interesting pendants of which there are many...in fact I think they have one of the most amazing selections of hand crafted pendants I've ever seen.
This was an interesting experience for me, I enjoyed the whole process, would definitly do it again...I met interesting people along the way...I found a great new place for beads & supplies...a girl can't have too many places to shop! To top it all off a stunning pendant/necklace!!!!!!
