Handmade Brass Pendant

Also at Ruby Tuesday Bead Company, I bought a brass pendant that the shop owner embossed and embellished. I used Cynthia Rutledge's pattern from the February/March 2011 issue of Beadwork Magazine to make this pendant.

Sakura Charm!

I visited my local beadstore, Ruby Tuesdays in Long Beach, and bought (among other things [grin]) a strand of purple petals. They are not the shape required by Cindy Holsclaw's Sakura Charm pattern, but I thought I'd give it a try. It took me a few attempts to decide that the petals were not going to fit with the pattern as written, and then I got lucky, and tried just changing all of the size 15/0's to 11/0's. It worked like a charm!

I love my little pendant. Thanks, Cindy!
