Chinook Jewelry Designs Blog Partner

I have had the honor of being one of the monthly design blog partners for Chinook Jewelry Designs.  Mellisa sent me two of her beautiful ceramic pendants to play with.  I chose the lovely floral pendant to use for my July ABS Challenge piece, but wasn't able to upload my pictures before the challenge deadline.

Below is a collage of the pendant and the finished necklace that I made.  I used red and yellow rivershell beads, periwinkle peanut seed beads, olivine opaque Czech glass wavy disc beads, brass beads, brass wire and a brass colored clasp.

I also received a sweet little heart pendant that I used as a charm on a bracelet made with gray, 10mm round, shell pearl beads, matte gunmetal seed beads and a silver plated clasp.

The pendants are so lovely and are beautiful colors.  My pictures really don't do them justice.  Mellisa has updated her Etsy shop with more wonderfully handcrafted ceramic and porcelain pendants, in colors that are perfect for your autumn/fall jewelry designs.
