not sure i like this one. the colors seem off or something :confused: . but it's my third stringing of this pendant, and the previous versions were much worse--too much red, etc. so i guess i'm going with this one.
handmade porcelain pendant hand-painted with my original image, handmade ceramic and glass beads, vintage and modern swarovski crystals, czech seed beads, "bali" sterling accents, sterling wire-wrap by me.
thanks for looking!

Ann, this is a beautiful necklace. I would love to see it in person. I know all about stringing and restringing...lol You just can't stop until you have the right look about the piece. You might think of x posting this over in wearables in the S&T thread, which is the daily show and tell for the group over there. You will recieve some good feedback from the group.

thanks so much for the feedback, Charissa! (i do think i'll post this on wearables; i usually post over there when the image is not western/southwestern--and when i can get there early enough to avoid a 4-hour loading time on the s&t thread! extremely slow dial-up]).

Ann... Sorry to not get to this. I'd been on vacation visiting my folks in Albuquerque for two weeks...
This is a lovely piece. I like the unusual design with the beads, definitely a piece to wear again a plain black top, a definite conversation starter.

thank you, Diane. i am still really unsure if these things are wearable at all--i and my family wear them (the ones that don't come out so well, and i wouldn't want to offer them to "the public"), but that's just us. i realize that the necklaces' appeal is very limited, especially as "fashion accessories" or whatever; but i have to make them, whether they are "successful" or not. because that's what my heart tells me to do.
(did you nearly get blown away while you were in albuquerque? it has been WAY TOO windy, all over NM, i think!).
thanks again for your comments.

New Mexico seems to be a great place to wear 'art jewelry'. I find I wear much more exciting, interesting jewelry there and I get many compliments. It must be the artist and Native American influences that allow it.
And yes, landing in ABQ mid-month was very exciting with the wind. I was in one of those smaller Continental jets, last seat in the tail, AND we landed from the east, dropping down fast after the mountains, going back and forth to slow down before the runway. I could identify the clubs the golfers were using at the Kirkland AFB course. Don't want to do that again real soon... :lol: Very windy indeed.
