Dessert for your neck! This is a serious piece of jewelry with a serious amount of fun, ready to take you from your work day to that special dinner party.

I created this piece by taking a beautiful wheel-thrown, glass-fused clay medallion created by Etsy's own Kristie Roeder of http://artisanclay.etsy.com . I wove a white, yellow, and brown, leather backed-bezel for it using peyote stitch. The pendant (including bail) is 2" wide and 2.5" long. The beadweaving gives the pendant both clean, crisp lines and sections of ruffles with great textures...much like an elaborately iced cake.

The peyote "sling" that I wove for the bail will accommodate several types of ropes or chains or cords, including the beautiful, slightly twisted, ndebele (herringbone)rope I created for it. The rope is 17" long when closed and has a simple beadwoven loop and toggle closure.

I used size 11 Japanese delicas and seed beads as well as tiny Japanese rocailles for the pendant. The beadwoven rope was created using the yellow delicas and bronze/brown seed beads.


Here's artisanclay's description of how she creates her glass-fused pieces: "The Piece itself has been fused with Stained Glass during the Kiln-firing process. I have combined many kinds of glass (clear, opaque, milky, and different colors) The Glasses become liquid and bleed into each other in the kiln swirling ands blending at the edges. Finally as I cool the kiln the glass fractures and crackles but with a smooth glass top. The crackling refracts light and glistens in the sun."
