I wanted to make sure that both of these pieces got used up, so I put everything else aside, and tried to design a necklace that would work with two drops, and still look balanced. I decided to try and construct a pendant design, with one drop above the other, using a series of loops at the end of a V-shaped St. Petersburg chain.
At first things didn’t work out the way I had hoped. The pendant section looked awkward and strange. Rather than get discouraged and scrap the whole thing, I tried adding some embellishments. With the addition of some beaded leaves, the pendant took on a whole new look, and the large loops of seed beads became stronger and more shapely.
I’m so glad that these pretty beads have finally found their place!
