A few weeks back, before I started this Challenge, I was organizing some of my pendants. I set one aside and put it on the edge of my bead mat, hoping that looking at it would spark some inspiration. It’s a dainty little violet crystal teardrop with some lovely facets. I picked it up at a local bead shop a couple of years ago with no real project in mind. I wanted to give it a chance to shine without getting lost in a bigger design.
Today I hit on just the right thing. I made a very simple little bail for my little purple teardrop (have I ever mentioned how much I don’t like making bails? It’s one of my least favourite things to make). Then I hung it from a silver-filled chain with some similar-coloured crystal bicones. The effect is simple, cute, and I’m pleased with it. What I’m not pleased with is the photo, because the colour is a bit washed out. I’m looking forward to having the time to do a proper photo shoot with this necklace.
