A few weeks ago I was inspired to make a necklace I had seen on the Fusion Beads Inspiration page. You can find the link here. They call it “Garden of Love Necklace”.
I have been searching for new techniques, ways to incorporate fiber and fabric into my jewelry and possibly less expensive options for my customers.
This technique uses the Diva Cord Maker, which I love and will be using again and again!
So now I have this awesome cord made for a necklace, but I can’t decide what type of pendant to use.
Since I finished the cord I have had tons of ideas. Here are a few of them…..(just a few!)
For several days I just kept pulling different pieces to try and help me make a decision.
Above is a bezeled piece of antique pottery off of the beach.
In this above picture is a lavender glass glob that I thought about making into a pendant like the green one to the right. The green on would be too small for this cord.
There was this bird toggle that I made out of silver which could be a toggle and a pendant, all in one.
Or I could use one of my glass pendants. I even pulled out my stained glass, from YEARS ago and thought about making a copper foiled heart that was pink on one side and lavender on the other.
Finally, there is this fine silver flower pendant that I made.
And yes, there were more ideas. I was literally paralyzed with ideas.
I THINK I have made a decision……but what do you think?
I’d love to hear your feedback.
