Work in Progress: Medallion and Collar

My plan to simultaneously clean up my workspace and search for new inspirations in my bead stash worked splendidly – almost too well, in fact. I still have to finish tying off the threads from the new chevron collar, and then I’m going to do a quick medallion pendant with some baroque pearls and a fish leather backing. It took some time to come up with a palette that I liked and that worked well with the burgundy color. Part of me really wanted to go with black and white stripes, but I’ve done it that way once before, and I’m looking to try something a little different this time.

Medallion Pendant and Aquatic Collar in Progress


As soon as that’s complete, I have plans for a somewhat elaborate collar featuring some hammer shell heishi that I’ve been sitting on for ages. I couldn’t resist getting the palette ready, so my bead tray is a little crowded right now.

What are you working on this week?
