Victorian Filigree Pendant

I used a brass filigree pendant piece for this pendant from Cathy has great brass stampings and findings. The centerpiece is a Mokume' Gane polymer clay piece I made.
I added a little fabric and seed beads to create this pendant.

The Shell and Pearls necklace is done!

I finished up the Shell and Pearls necklace this morning. I like the Soutache trim strap and the snappers attaching the strap to the centerpiece. It can still be a piece to decorate a purse/bag. I will put it up in my Etsy shop today. I am so glad to have a project finished. It seems I have a table full of unfinished things!

My Tiger 1 finally done!

I finally got the beading/loomwork done on my first large Tiger design! Whew!! I had a few problems, had to take 6 rows off and redo them. Evidently I can't even listen to music when working on this intense of a project! It takes a lot of concentration and keeping track of every count of every color. I worked from the "word/number" chart and refered to the bead program graph when I needed to. I do not have a plan for this piece. I may get another canvas bag and mount it similar to the other one. Or make a bag to put it on. Undecided, but it is ready for whatever I decide.
This one is 140 beads wide including the 5 rows of border on each side. 109 rows long including the 5 rows of border top and bottom. I still need to work on my loom as the piece is wider at the beginning/bottom than at the end/top
