Paisley Lizard's Tammy Adams is sponsoring her first blog hop and I couldn't wait to participate.
Tammy was offering a black cat pendant at a special price to be used as the source of our inspiration. This was a pendant that Tammy made herself. I like the background of black, gray, and silver,
I had a hard time trying to decide which other beads to use.
Black faceted beads and silver seed beads were a possibility
Another choice was gray pearls with black ebeads and the black faceted beads from the first choice. I almost think those black beads are too large. All I am seeing are the big beads and nothing else.
The last choice was the large black beads again with a matte silver seed bead.
The end result was something completely different from most of the suggestions. I almost wonder why I take pictures of the wannabes. I never end up taking a progress shot of what I actually end of making.
I actually ended up using two different sizes of gray pearls, black seed beads and some gray tube beads that I either got in a destash or one of Andrew Thornton's challenge kits, I can't remember which.
I found a cat and fish toggle clasp in silver to use.
I made earrings to go with the set. I always try to make earrings whether I end up selling them with the necklace or not, I want to give the customer an option.
Please stop by the other participants of the blog hop and say hi:
Thank you for stopping by. Be sure to come back next Thursday, November 19, to see what I have made for the reveal of Andrew Thornton's Gold Dust Special Challenge and Last Harvest Challenge.
