Per usual, I forgot to take a picture of Erin's lovely pendant before I got started working with it... I was just too excited! I love the way she combined multiple colors of polymer clay that she had first silk screened like miniature jigsaw puzzles. The colors feel so lush under the high gloss of the resin.
As often is the case with Erin's little works of art, I really wanted to let the pendant do most of the talking here. The style of the pendant, to me anyway, lends itself to being strung. I chose to go with a multi-strand design with different seed beads on each strand that picked up on various colors from the pendant (and painting!). I had a great size 8 mix from Glass Garden Beads that I knew would make up one strand and then I played around with different combinations of alternating sizes of beads for the other two strands until I was happy with the mix.
