Description:

Peekaboo I see you! This was one of those pieces that came about by just playing around with beads. I had some of those awesome Miyuki cotton pearls in just about every size. So I just picked a size and went with it. You will capture the cotton pearl with a simple bezel of beads, working into a drop shape. Then the fun really begins with the embellishing! I love to embellish! We will use some Rose Montee’s, Czech crystal pearls, 2 True beads, Miyuki spacer beads, and seed beads for this piece. Suspend this pendant from a bead circle. You will have several options for wearing this piece. You will decide if you want to wear the piece as a pendant from a short necklace
strap or worn long. Several colors available.
