I made it with 2 days to spare completing my entry for the Etsy Beadweavers "Spring Break Challenge" The challenge for me came with the focal point of the necklace. At first I had visions of pearls nestled in fringe circles sewn to a v shape in the front. I made the v and the necklace part using diagonal peyote. Out of the blue I remembered a dragonfly pendant I had from Earthenwood Studios. Those other thoughts quickly dispersed when I pulled out the pendant. Azaleas and rhododendrons came to mind. The south is beautiful in the spring with azaleas and rhododendrons in bloom. Surrounding the dragonfly pendant are 56 3-mm siam a/b crystals. Twisted hex beads added texture to the design. I am ready for spring, for the flowers and the dragonflies it will bring.
