Today's Reveal...Ceramic Blog Hop Design Challenge!

Another fantastic design challenge hosted by the lovely Lisa Lodge of Pine Ridge Treasures! If you are a beader/designer and you have not joined the Facebook group you really should..she puts together some wonderful design kits and offers lots of fabulous destash events for our beading pleasure! This time around was all about the ceramic artisan goodness and of course Lisa always includes a wonderful selection of extras to round out any design challenge. 
Here is a picture of the gorgeous selection of beads I received. I was so excited to see the Gaea lotus pendant...I can not even tell you!! I have been...well I still am...hoarding one in my collection for a while now. So it was extra awesome to receive one for this challenge and know that I had to design with it! 
I will say as has been the way will my life so much lately, I am busy, busy, busy so I was only able to complete one design BUT it is so gorgeous...I have worn it at least 3 times and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! 
Of course I used the pendant from the kit, along with the gorgeous burgundy chocolate glass pearls, from my own stash I added some beautiful sunstone chips and finished everything with antiqued copper wire. 
Here is a shot of the whole necklace. I really thing the pearls, sunstone and antiqued copper perfectly capture the rustic brown tones through out the pendant. 
Here is an upclose of the beaded chain and a portion of the pendant showing detail of the brown tones and how well it all comes together. 
Well that's it for me this round...I had hoped to make a matching bracelet of pearls and sunstones but ran short of time so that will have to wait for another less hectic day or week or month! LOL
