Here's the bead and sequin jewelry piece I was working on, finally finished up. I decided to turn it into a pendant and added a peyote stitch bale big enough to accommodate chains and necklaces of various sizes and widths. The backing is black ultra leather, which sews pretty well and is easy to keep clean. I had a lot of fun making this, and it went quickly, so I'll probably make some more of this kind of thing in the near future.

In my immediate future -- start the July page!

Lois, what a great idea. I am learning so much from all of you talented ladies. It is so exciting.
If I had 29 hours in each day I might be able to catch up on the ideas swimming around in my head.
Every day here I learn something new.
I finally finished my June piece and I am so excited to start July's but I have to get some stuff done around the house then....... its off to beadland.

I feel the same way--everyone's work is inspiring to me! And there is never time to do everything I want to do, or at least try to do.

This is a great pendant with an intriguing design, and such a good idea to make a beaded bale like that!

LOVE the sequins and how you designed with them! And of course I'm in awe of your edgework :) Is it wrong that I've been sitting here looking at the back shot for a really long time now? :)

Thanks so much for all your advice on my June BJP page!! I'm looking into that cabochon book and your recommended glue (non-toxic fumes is definitely a plus!)

Your work is beautiful!! Thanks again for your generous sharing of wisdom! I really do appreciate it!!

I'm wondering what size this piece is overall. I really like it. The picot edging made a big difference.

The pendant is kind of large, measuring 1 5/8" x 2 3/8", including the edging. I wanted to have something a little flashy for a change.

And thank you all for such kind comments! I am overwhelmed!
