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!


  1. Ooo how cute! I love your take on the Sakura Charm pattern - the resulting pendant is so you!

    I have to thank you as well; I've been wearing my Rivoli Sunflower pendant for the past few days (the blue and purple one), and it's gotten tons of compliments.

  2. It's that old favorite called colored glass! :) These petals are probably Czech pressed glass.
