Crystal Chyll - BJP January

I signed up for the Robin Atkins' Beaded Journal Project, 2010. The challenge is to make a beaded item each month in the same shape and size. I choose a goddess shape and have turned it into a pendant. The piece uses many techniques of bead embroidery and a different stone cab will be used in each month's project. This design incorporates a pearl button, metal ring, stone cab, pearls, hex, bugle & seed beads. The piece is lined in the back with leather.

Victoria, this is beautiful. But, typo there. Not "bad embroidery", but "bead embroidery". Leave it to me to notice someone else's typo. Hugs; NancyB

She's great, Victoria!!! So different than your butterflies from last year... I love your idea for making these figures into pendants that you can wear.... I also love her honest, button face!!! There's more... I also love the way you used black along with silver and white to represent winter. Yay!!!!
