Prong Set Pendant and Peyote Necklace with Genea Beads

I read Staci Smith's Tut and prong set this pendant

I was able to do this with a pendant with a hole in it instead of a cabochon. I did a few other things differently from Staci's Easy Prong Setting Tut due to what I had on hand.  And it worked out anyway.   Thanks so much for the inspiration and directions, Staci.  I highly recommend her tutorial.  You can find it here
And there is a CHALLENGE to show off what you make in a blog hop too which you can learn about  here

       Genea Beads and Me

my ceramic orange sun charms are available in  pairs in my Etsy shop

Making jewelry with Genea Beads is not entirely new to me.  I was so fortunate to have her as my Bead Soup Blog Partner in 2011.  We had a great time and I have been crazy about her lampwork beads ever since I first saw them.  
Genea's beads are the lovely brown and green glass beads.  They inspired my colors choices and the overall design.

I am planning to have this necklace on display in my studio for  the St. Lawrence County Arts Council  Artists' Studio Tour the weekend of Nov. 10, 11, and 12.

  3. So beautiful, I love how all the dark colors are put together.

  4. Colors are always attractive. A great artistic art shown with the finishing of the pendant. This one is highly attractive and one would love wearing the same.

  5. Selling Your Jewelry: Triumph or Tragedy?

    Which is more enjoyable, getting a root trench, making good on your assessments, or selling your gems? Not a very remarkable decision, but rather following is some information that can remove the disappointment from selling your adornments. What's more, answer the hard inquiries like: Will I get a reasonable cost for my adornments? Or on the other hand did I pay excessively?

    The two basic subject matters to get the best cost for your gems are the variables that decide the worth of home gems and the alternatives to selling it. Does this mean you need to turn into a gemologist just to sell your gems? No. Be that as it may, some schoolwork and note taking can mean a lot greater cost paid for your gems. How about we start with what decides the worth of bequest gems.
