Finally, after many retries, I settled on an idea I had thrown out at the very beginning and tried for a western style using the pendant and clasp.
Pam included some lovely faceted smokey topaz, so I went with orange instead of turquoise. I do love orange. :-)
After successfully finishing the pony necklace, I still had quite a few beads left and the creative juices were really flowing, so I happily dove into another necklace design...
Pam and added in some frosted glass and agates.
And so, I used a little of everything (except the coral, but I have plans for that coming up very soon) and really did step out of my comfort zone and I discovered that stepping out once in a while really can be so enjoyable!
Thank you all for stopping by! Thank you Pam for the most fabulous soup! And thank you most of all to awesome Lori for pulling this all together!! It has been so much fun!
And just to say thanks once more, I'm running a special in my shop starting today and continuing through March
And now, I'm off to start hopping!
