My friend Maria of Rypan Designs just returned from the bead shows down in Tuscon, Arizona. She found these wonderful vintage pendants from Pakistan. She selected five blue ones for me. I have strung them with some dyed aventurine and copper spacers. It looks great. I am going to wear it today and see how it feels.

I have started two other boxes. One is called New School with fish on it. The other is triangluar with a Celtic knot design. I am putting them aside for awhile to work on my Bag O Beads challenge from the Toronto Bead Society.

pendant that I had made last summer. I wore the pendant and the bracelet to my niece Elizabeth's 3rd birthday party. She thought that the beads looked like gum hence the name Aunt Jo-Ann's Gum Bracelet. I did teach Elizabeth that the beads were actually stone and not gum. It is Rhyolite (Rainforest Jasper) and copper Swarovski pearls strung with a copper toggle.
