While on our trip up the coast we stopped at a tiny gift shop just filled with beautiful things. Many of the items where from local crafts people. I just love it when local items are sold in local shops.
For Breakfast we ate at a very nice little hometown coffee shop , named Naveen's. The food and service was great. And in the parking lot I spotted this beautiful rose.
Then we headed to the gift shop. There was a section filled with lovely beads.
Here are the treasures I purchased at the little gift shop. I bought enough to make a pair of earrings and a pendant.
I started with the larger pieces and made wire wrapped bails for all three.
Next I added the rest of the crystals to eye pins along with some bead caps from my stash.
Here are the three pieces almost finished.
For the pendant I used a long filigree piece I had and bent it to fit over a black velvet cord. to create an interesting connecting bail.
I named the set Forest Fairies because they reminded my of the surrounding forest where I bought them.
And here is the finished set. The colors are actually gold and green and blue with sparks of lavender.
