My friend Shirley does not have her ears pierced, so a pendant it is.
The pattern is from YouTube by le Gioie di Carmen, and you can watch the video HERE
In her video she does not have the bead drop, I have been buying the drops at the Gemfaire from a place that sells them 70% off, this one is Lapis Lazuli.
It matches very well the bracelet from the previous post.

For this challenge Lori Anderson from Pretty Things paired beader's and we sent each other a focal bead that we were "hoarding" and that were special to us, and we were to make a beaded piece from those beads.
This is a blog hop, so you can visit Lori's Blog to see what all the other bead artists created.
You can see her blog HERE
Thank you so much Lori for making this happen.
I am so glad for this opportunity.
I was paired with Valerie Tilghman from http://artjewelzdimensions.blogspot.com/
The above postcard is from Valerie.
This is what I received from Valerie:
The fish is so cute and it looks like it made of shell. Such a cute little guy, Valerie also sent me some vintage beads.
This is what I created:
I used 6mm Aquamarine and pink Quartz beads. I also used the shell beads that I received.
This pendant was a bead embroidery and I used cup chain, bicones, and I used the vintage bead that Valerie sent for the center of my pendant, I also added a ruby drop.
To finish Valerie sent me something else:
Thank Lori again and thank you Valerie!!
I hope everyone had as much fun as I had.

You can make it into a pendant or earrings, but for me it was a little too big for earrings, so I made it into a pendant.
It uses the Arcos and IOS beads by Puca.

I just love this pattern , I have made a lot of bracelets using this pattern.
The original pattern calls for 4mm crystal beads, but I changed it to 4mm cube beads.
These beads are Chinese cubes that I bought at the GemFaire for $2 a strand. I also used gold 11/0 delicas and 15/0 seed beads in gold as well.
This pattern is by Andrea Bánhalmi.
And this is the pattern I followed, but I used 2 rows instead of 3.
This a flat herringbone stitch.
